Nine players are in the minority when it comes to the NFL's proposed concussion settlement. More than 4,000 players have registered to receive updates on the settlement, but nine have opted out of the offer.

These nine players will be able to individually sue the NFL if their brain injuries were caused solely by NFL concussions.

In July, seven NFL players filed an appeal to the settlement but lost. Read more about thatt here.

Read more about the amount that former players can expect and information about future litigation in this case in this article.
