CHECK YOUR HEAD: CBSSPORTS.com's Dennis Dodd wrote there "won't be a moment or a press conference to announce it but the NCAA's concussion liability is about to be reduced." It means that there should be a "growing perception that the association is getting it arms around the issue." Perhaps "kicking and screaming through court battles but, still, there is progress." The settlement is "expected to include a medical monitoring fund" of at least $70M that would "encompass all past and current players." The NCAA probably will "have to access some of its insurance, but that's what insurance is for" (CBSSPORTS.com, 5/13).
