NCAA and Brain Injury

The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) has agreed to pay a $70 million settlement which provides for testing in order to assess whether past and current college athletes have suffered brain injuries throughout the course of their participation in a wide range of sports.  Athletes with brain injuries can individually sue for damages due to their brain injuries on the basis of the results from this testing, but the settlement amount itself does not specifically involve any dedicated sum to pay athletes with injuries.
