Webster's Estate received an unpublished opinion from the United States Court of

Appeals for the Fourth Circuit that affirmed the decision of the District that the

administrator wrongly denied him benefits. In its unpublished opinion, the Fourth

Circuit stated that the NFL Plan had acknowledged that the multiple head injuries

Webster sustained during his playing career (1974 to 1990) "...caused Webster

eventually to suffer total and permanent mental disability ..."

79. Thus, as early as 1999, the NFL, through expert medical testimony

presented by Webster and the NFL Plan itself, knew and accepted that repetitive

traumatic brain injuries sustained by an NFL offensive lineman led to long-term

encephalopathy and permanent mental disability.
