A judge is refusing to approve a settlement over concussion injuries in the NFL.. for now.

FOX News Radio’s Jessica Rosenthal reports:

The judge says before she approves a $765 million settlement to cover retired players who have concussion-related injuries, she needs more financial documents proving this amount will be enough. Attorney Phillip Thomas represents dozens of retired players.

(Thomas) “On the surface it doesn’t sound like enough because there are somewhere 15-20,000 former players in the NFL because, you know, the careers are usually so short.”

The attorneys who worked on the settlement say they’re confident it will be approved, but until now a non disclosure agreement has meant they could not submit the financial documents the judge wanted.
