A federal judge ruled National Football League team owners cannot apply a certain offset against workers compensation benefits paid to former players injured while playing. U.S. District Judge Paul A. Crotty of the U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York, ruled Friday that contract language does not allow the team owners to apply a “dollar-for-dollar” calculation to offset other benefits the players received.
