Attorney Gene Locks has won multibillion-dollar settlements for asbestos and tobacco victims. But his newest case has even more at stake. Some fear it could change football forever.

At the center of the case are more than 4,000 former football players and their wives. The plaintiffs claim that the National Football League covered up life-altering brain injuries.

If they win their case, will they also sink the N.F.L.?
