PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The National Football League on Wednesday agreed to remove a $675 million cap on concussion-related damages, after a judge questioned whether the proposed settlement provides enough money to cover retired players. 

More than 4,500 former NFL players are included in the lawsuit. 

The revised settlement also eliminates a provision that prohibited anyone who receives concussion damages from the NFL from suing the NCAA, or other amateur football leagues.
