NEW YORK, N.Y. - The NFL may be on the hook for more money than it expected if a federal judge cant be convinced that its $765 million concussion settlement with more than 4,500 former players will be adequate to pay out benefits over the 65-year life of the agreement. The deal hit a snag Tuesday when a federal judge asked both parties to back up their assertions that the agreement negotiated over several months is appropriate. U.S. District Judge Anita B. Brody denied a motion that was meant to serve as a preliminary approval for the settlement, seeking more information from the parties. She wrote that she was "primarily concerned that not all retired NFL football players who ultimately receive a qualifying diagnosis or their (families) ... will be paid," and that the lawyers for both parties have not addressed those concerns. Given the judges ruling, the two sides will need to offer more evidence the fund will be sufficient or possibly have the NFL add money to the pot. Otherwise, they may be left to start over. "We are confident that the settlement is fair and adequate, and look forward to demonstrating that to the court," NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said. Meanwhile, former players looking to receive assistance for the injuries they sustained while playing in the league will have to wait to be compensated. The two sides agreed in late August, just before the season kicked off and the issue largely went to the back burner, awaiting Brodys decision. The weekly accounting of brain injuries on the field, despite efforts to reduce them, continued to make headlines. Brody pointed out that the class of approximately 20,000 could overwhelm the fund, even if only 10 per cent of its members file claims against the $675 million set aside to pay claims, working out to $337,500 per player. The maximum payments in the settlement include $5 million for a younger retiree with Lou Gehrigs disease, $3 million for serious dementia, and $25,000 for an 80-year-old with early dementia. Sol Weiss, a lead lawyer for the ex-players, remained confident the class-action settlement will ultimately be approved. "I am very confident that the (actuarial) people we used are right, and that there will be enough money to cover these claims for 65 years," Weiss said. The remainder of the $765 settlement is being earmarked for neurological testing and education. Lawyers will be paid on top of that by the NFL, meaning the suit would cost the league $900 million — or about 10 per cent of one years annual revenues. Brody also took issue with another part of the original agreement, writing in a footnote that she was concerned that the agreement prevents participants from suing the NCAA and other amateur football organizations. "Im not sure why the NFL would insist on that," said Gabe Feldman, a law professor who directs the sports law program at the Tulane University Law School. More than 4,500 former players filed the suit, some accusing the league of fraud for its handling of concussions. They include former Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Dorsett and Super Bowl-winning quarterback Jim McMahon, who suffers from dementia. Brodys hand-picked mediator, former federal judge Layn R. Phillips, led several months of negotiations last year and has called the deal fair to both sides. If and when the parties can satisfy all of Brodys concerns, she would then give preliminary approval to the settlement. Following that would be a hearing at which people with objections can speak and have their issues addressed before final settlement and payments. ___ Follow Rick Freeman at http://twitter.com/RWFreeman ___ Associated Press writers Barry Wilner and Maryclaire Dale contributed to this report.

Watch the game live on TSN and TSN GO at 9pm et/6pm pt. Serge Ibaka returned to the Thunder lineup from a calf injury that was supposed to sideline him for the remainder of the postseason and the results were sparkling.SAN DIEGO - Philip Rivers and the San Diego Chargers twice had their playoff destiny in their own hands. They still ended up missing the post-season for the fourth time in five seasons.Losing at home to New England and Denver on consecutive weeks was one thing, although it proved the Chargers couldnt hang in there with the AFCs elite teams.Getting handled by the division rival Kansas City Chiefs on the final day of the regular season was another thing, because all the Chargers (9-7) had to do was win and they would have been in the post-season.What we have is a pretty good team, star tight end Antonio Gates said. We are a playoff team. Everybody knows that. Teams that had an opportunity to play against us, they know. Denver knows. Those games are coming down to one or two plays. Weve just got to be able to make those plays. Weve got to be a better situational football team.The Chargers final stretch was at times riveting and at times illustrated how much work they still have to do.Rivers brought the Chargers back from a 10-point deficit in the final six minutes for a win at Baltimore. He rallied the Bolts to an overtime win at San Francisco after the Chargers fell behind by 21 points in a dismal first half.In between, though, were the home losses to Tom Brady and Peyton Manning. The Chargers scored only one offensive touchdown in each of those games, as they did in the 19-7 loss at Kansas City that saw the Bolts fail to repeat the playoff trip they made last year.Its tough, because youve got to constantly build on what you have, Gates said. We have a great foundation, great players, great coaching staff. Its just up to us to build on it. Obviously this year didnt go the way we liked. We were one game away from making the post-season. Ive got all the confidence in the world that the foundation has been put in place and will eventually succeed in due time.Earlier, the Chargers won five straight games, including against defending Super Bowl champion Seattle. They then lost three straight, including a 37-0 pratfall at Miami.It was a heck of a year in a lot of ways, Rivers said. A lot of highs, some lows, and ultimately it ends on a low, and thats disappointing. But we fought like crazy. At the end it wasnt good enough. But the effort and fight and togetherness and the team was there every Sunday.Here are some things to remember about the Chargeers season:RIVERS: The QB played through chest and back injuries.ddddddddddddAs usual, coach Mike McCoy bristled whenever asked about them, and Rivers declined to divulge much information. Rivers didnt rule out needing off-season surgery on his back injury, although he said reports he had a bulging disc in his back were not exactly accurate. Rivers said discussing his injuries would be self-serving, and then added: My injuries had nothing to do with whether I threw it good or threw it bad. Still, Rivers threw seven interceptions in the final three games, including two in the loss at Kansas City, when he also lost a fumble. He finished the season with 4,286 yards, 31 touchdowns and 18 interceptions. He had seven more interceptions than during his bounceback season of 2013.BEST QB-TE COMBO EVER: Gates caught 12 touchdown passes from Rivers, giving the duo 72, the most in NFL history between a quarterback and tight end.NOT MUCH RUNNING BY RYAN: Oft-injured Ryan Mathews, among the big-name Chargers who will be eligible for free agency, was limited by knee and ankle injuries to only six games, his fewest in five seasons with the Bolts. He had 330 yards, second on the team to Branden Oliver, an undrafted rookie who ran for 582 yards and three scores. Due to his lack of durability, Mathews likely will be allowed to leave as a free agent.CENTERS: Due to injuries, the Chargers started five different centres. Veteran Nick Hardwick was knocked out of the opener with a season-ending stinger. Rich Ohrnberger started seven of the next nine games before he went on IR with a back injury. Doug Legursky started two games before going on IR with a knee injury. Rookie Chris Watt started five games before getting knocked out with a calf injury and Trevor Robinson started the season finale.DWIGHT FREENEY: If this was the last season of Freeneys stellar career, at least he went out with a sack in the loss at Kansas City. Freeney, who turns 35 in February, finished his second season with the Chargers and is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent. He played in all 16 games after having his 2013 season cut short by injury after just four games. He had 3 1/2 sacks this season, giving him 111 1/2 for his career.___Follow Bernie Wilson on Twitter at http://twitter.com/berniewilson___Online: http://pro32.ap.org/poll and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL Wholesale Throwback Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Throwback Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Cheap NFL Gear Jerseys From China Youth NFL Jerseys Cheap Cheap Jerseys From China ' ' '
