Announced changes follow “an ugly incident . . .’

“The NFL and the players’ union announced a series of changes Friday to the way potential concussions are handled,” AP reports.

Why it matters, per AP: “The NFL has been under increased scrutiny the past several years over player safety when it comes to head injuries. A $1 billion settlement of concussion-related claims from more than 20,000 former players took effect earlier this year, resolving thousands of lawsuits that accused the NFL of hiding what it knew about the risks of repeated concussions.”
