SEA­HAWKS: Mi­crosoft co-founder and Sea­hawks owner Paul Allen said Thurs­day he will pay for a two-year, $2.4 mil­lion study into whether re­peated blows to the head can lead to de­men­tia. Re­searchers at the Allen In­sti­tute for Brain Sci­ence and the Univer­sity of Wash­ing­ton will ex­am­ine do­nated brains to look for links be­tween head in­juries and later health prob­lems like Alzheimer’s and Parkin­son’s.

VIK­INGS: Adrian Peter­son says he plans on play­ing against Green Bay on Sun­day de­spite a sore groin that has taken away some of his ex­plo­sive­ness.

COLTS: In­di­anapo­lis owner Jim Ir­say and his wife of 33 years are end­ing their mar­riage. Meg Ir­say filed a di­vorce pe­ti­tion Thurs­day cit­ing an “ir­re­triev­able break­down” of the mar­riage. The cou­ple mar­ried Aug. 2, 1980. They have been sep­a­rated for a decade.
