Rams Order To Pay Reggie Bush 12.5 Mil For Injuries

posted by Katie Gogo -

In 2015 Reggie Bush went through a career-ending injury that forced him to hang up his helmet and pads. The video below (scroll down to watch) shows Bush slipping on some concrete that outlined the field at Edward Jones Dome in St. Luis. The Rams are not playing in St. Luis anymore, but the court decided they are 100 percent liable for Bush's injuries. He was awarded $4.95 million in compensatory damages and $7.5 million in punitive damages. Bush stated he is "very happy" about the outcome of the trial. 

Bush was playing with the San Francisco 49'ers at the time when the injury happened, which resulted in a torn MCL. Two weeks after Bush's injury, the Rams fixed their stadium and put padding to cover up the concrete, but that didn't do much for the Heisman winner, he still lost his ability to play the game he loved. 

Reggie posted about his victory on social media. See below. 

Dream Team! ✊🏾
