WASHINGTON (AP) - Lawyers, the NCAA, and a helmet company are asking a judge to dismiss a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the family of a college football player who died of a head injury.
The Maryland Attorney General's Office says the suit fails to show two coaches knew Frostburg State University fullback Derek Sheely was bleeding or had a concussion when they bandaged his head and sent him back into practice.
A judge in Montgomery County, Md., is expected to hear arguments on Friday.
The family's lawsuit claims the 22-year-old Sheely died in August 2011 after participating in high-speed drills that involved repeated blows to the head. The complaint says Sheely was never checked for a concussion or to see if his helmet was properly fitted.
