Aaron Hernandez's family has dropped its lawsuit against the NFL, but that doesn't mean the case is over.
Researchers at Boston University said last month Hernandez's autopsy showed signs of an advanced form of chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE.
Attorneys for his family filed a federal suit against the NFL at the same time that diagnosis was made.
But on Friday, they dismissed the case "without prejudice," meaning they can re-file in another court. A lawyer for the estate told The Boston Globe that's their plan.
If they do re-file, the NFL may argue Hernandez knew the risks of football. He played for roughly a decade before he went pro.
