Last week, Reggie Bush tore his MCL after slipping on concrete that appears to be way too close to the field of play at the Rams' Edward Jones Dome:
Not only was this a season-ending injury, but, at Bush's age (he'll be 31 next season) and position, it could be a potentially career-ending one. This weekend a report emerged that Bush has secured legal representation and will sue the city of St. Louis due to said injury. In case you're wondering, the city both owns and operates the Rams' home stadium.
Bush will likely seek payment for "gross negligence," and has hired attorney Shawn Holley and her KWIKA firm. In the past, Holley was a part of O.J. Simpson's legal team (so you know she's good) and has also previously represented Bush.
After Bush's tumble (and a similar concrete slipping incident the previous weekend involving Josh McCown) the Rams requested that St. Louis make changes to the concrete area behind each team's benches. Those will reportedly go into effect for their next home game (a week from today against the Bears) which of course is too little, too late as it applies to the Niners and their IR-stricken running back.
