NCAA settles head-injury suit, will change rules (Yahoo Sports)

Tebow received a concussion on the play that put him in the hospital for a night.

The NCAA agreed on Tuesday to help athletes with head injuries in a proposed settlement of a class-action lawsuit that college sports' governing body touted as a major step forward but that critics say doesn't go nearly far enough. The deal, filed in U.S. District Court in Chicago, calls for the NCAA to toughen return-to-play rules for players who receive head blows and create a $70 million fund to pay for thousands of current and former athletes to undergo testing to determine whether they suffered brain trauma while playing football and other contact sports. ''It's changed college sports forever.'' Others strongly disagreed. One plaintiffs' attorney not involved in the negotiations called it a ''terrible deal'' that lets the NCAA off the hook far too easily.
