Ohio university pays player $712K to settle concussion suit

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) A university in Ohio will pay $712,000 to a former football player who said the team's coaches and medical staff didn't pull him from practice right away after he suffered multiple concussions that led to a permanent brain injury.

Former offensive lineman Cody Silk accused the Bowling Green State University's staff in a lawsuit of failing to address his concussions even though he reported being wobbly and confused during training.

Silk, who is from Sterling Heights, Michigan, said he had three concussions in the fall of 2010 before he was permanently pulled from practice.
