ST. LOUIS (CBS Sports) — Running back Reggie Bush, who suffered a season-ending and potentially career-threatening knee injury after slipping on concrete surrounding the field in St. Louis, has procured legal representation and plans on suing the city of St. Louis over the matter, according to a source close to the player.
High-powered attorney Shawn Holley and her KWIKA firm is handling Bush’s case, which will take aim at the Edward Jones Dome — owned and operated by the city of St. Louis through its Sports Authority and Convention Bureau.READ MORE: Flash Flood Watches Issued As Storm Aims at Fire-Scarred Northern California
