The judge probably won't throw the case out. What is interesting in the suit is that it includes 400 players who never played a single down in an NFL game [for example players on practice squads]. It also includes punters and field goal kickers. There is also an argument that a player does not have to have a concussion but merely a hard hit to suffer brain damage. If the former players win then spin this thing out ten years and the NFL will really have to change dramatically to attract atheletes.
