A settlement has been reached involving the NCAA and concussion-related injuries.

FOX News Radio’s Jeff Monosso reports:

The NCAA is settling a class-action suit involving head injuries, brought on by current and former players. A $70 million fund is being created to diagnose and determine if players suffered brain trauma. A return-to-play policy will also be implemented for injured athletes who’ll now also take baseline neurological tests every year to help doctors determine the severity of any concussions during the season. This also stops short of paying players any money, like the NFL’s settlement does, but players could still sue individually for damages.
