The NFL will propose a new testing formula to determine the eligibility of former players to collect money from the $1 billion concussion lawsuit settlement, according to the Associated Press' Maryclaire Dale.

The step comes after the league announced in June it would cease using "race norming" as part of the process.

Wesley Lowery of CBS News reported in September how some former players and their attorneys believed Black players were having a more difficult time receiving payments as a result of the testing formula. Lowery explained why "race norming" was believed to be one cause.
