The NFL announced on Wednesday that it would halt the practice of “race-norming,” which is based on the principal assumed Black players start out with lower cognitive function. This practice made it harder for Retirees to show a deficit and be able to qualify for benefits.

The announcements comes after a civil rights lawsuit was filed by a pair of Black players.
