 LOS ANGELES (AP) - ESPN says it's ending its collaboration with public TV in an investigation of the NFL and players' head injuries.
ESPN said Friday its decision was based on a lack of editorial control over ``League of Denial: The NFL's Concussion Crisis,'' airing in October on PBS' ``Frontline'' public affairs series.
At ESPN's request, its logo was being removed from websites related to the project and from the film itself.
In an online statement, the producers of ``Frontline'' said they regretted ESPN's exit. The producers said the two-part ``League of Denial'' will air as scheduled on Oct. 8 and 15.
Meanwhile, both ESPN and the NFL on Friday denied a New York Times report that quotes unidentified sources saying the NFL had pressured ESPN to drop out of the project.
