Tuesday's health and safety news from the world of football:
* The Baltimore Sun wrote about local efforts to raise money in order to build a statue in honor of Baltimore Colts Hall of Fame running back Lenny Moore.

A $750,000 fund-raising drive in conjunction with the Ed Block Courage Award Foundation was announced Monday to create a statue to honor Moore.

"We know without a doubt that Lenny not only has excelled in the area of football," said Marvin "Doc" Cheatham, the founder of the Lenny Moore Statue and Wax Figurine Committee, "but has also significantly contributed to many, many organizations."

Committee members said they hope to place the statue near the Johnny Unitas statue outside M&T Bank Stadium. They also plan to create a wax likeness, which would be housed at the National Great Blacks in Wax Museum on North Avenue.
