Default Player sues over injuries in Cowboys practice facility collapse

Quote:
Jamar Hunt, a long snapper who was an undrafted rookie free agent with the Cowboys last offseason, is suing over injuries he suffered when the practice facility collapsed during a storm.

Hunt, who says the injuries ended his career, was inside the team's indoor practice facility when it collapsed and is now suing the builder and companies operated by Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.

Hunt's attorney, Michael Guajardo, says Hunt suffered a herniated disk in his neck when a steel support landed on him, and that NFL teams now view him as "damaged goods."

"You see NFL players bouncing back from this [injury], but those are veteran players with a history of success," Guajardo said, per the Associated Press. "With a rookie, teams are reluctant to take a chance. The biggest loss for him is losing his dream to play in the NFL."

Hunt was cut by the Cowboys before training camp and didn't sign with another team.

Special teams coach Joe DeCamillas, who suffered a broken vertebrae, and scout Rich Behm, who was paralyzed from the waist down, have also filed lawsuits.
