Two former college football players have filed a lawsuit charging the National Collegiate Athletic Association with failing to protect athletes from life-altering brain injuries. The lawsuit, which the plaintiffs hope to turn into a class action, says that the association has failed to adopt sufficiently stringent screening and medical treatment policies despite mounting evidence linking sports-related concussions to dementia and other serious ailments. The case was brought by former players at Northwestern University and the University of Central Arkansas.
