REPORT: 49ers RB Reggie Bush To Sue St. Louis Over Season-Ending Knee Injury

A week after he suffered a season-ending knee injury against the St. Louis Rams, San Francisco 49ers running back Reggie Bush is reportedly prepping a lawsuit against the City of St. Louis. The city is the principal owner of the Edward Jones Dome.

Bush will employ attorney Shawn Holley and her firm, KWIKA, in his case against St. Louis, per a report by CBS Sports' Jason LaCanfora.

Bush slipped on the cement surface surrounding the field at the Edward Jones Dome while attempting to stop his forward momentum, suffering a torn MCL in the process. Bush's surgery ends his 2015 season prematurely, and could lead to the end of his career at the age of 30.

According to LaCanfora, Bush will likely go the route of claiming gross negligence by the City of St. Louis based on the danger inherent with the concrete ring around the stadium. Bush's injury is not the first caused by the ring this year, as Cleveland QB Josh McCown slipped on the surface and injured his shoulder the week before Bush tore his MCL. 

Rams officials are reportedly looking at changing the surface before November 15th's game against the Atlanta Falcons.
