Former Cowboy Suing For Damages From Valley Ranch Collapse

((HT: KTVT-CBS11))

An ex-Dallas Cowboy who was inside the team's artifical, outdoor-indoor practice facility when it collapsed last year claims he suffered a career-ending injury in the incident and is seeking damages from both the builder and companies operated by team owner Jerry Jones.

Jamar Hunt, a rookie free agent from UTEP, says in his court filing that he suffered "serious, disabling and permanent injuries" when the collapse occured in May of 2009. Hunt was trying to make the team as a tight end and/or a deep snapper.

Hunt's attorney, Michael Guajardo, said the player suffered a herniated disk in his neck when a steel support fell on him.

The Cowboys, obviously, aren't commenting.

As a refrsher, here's CBS11's Selena Hernandez at the time of the conclusion of the investigation explaining the evidence...
