A federal judge on Monday gave preliminary approval to the concussion compensation deal between the NFL and former players. The ruling comes two weeks after U.S. District Judge Anita Brody raised questions over whether the $675 million cap on damages paid by the league was sufficient to cover the claims of the roughly 20,000 potentially eligible former players. The league has since removed the cap and Brody signed off on the deal.
