Reggie Bush is set to get PAID … ’cause a jury in Missouri just awarded the former NFL star a $12.5 MILLION payout in his lawsuit against the Rams.
Back in 2015, Bush — a 49er — was playing the Rams in St. Louis at Edward Jones Dome. While returning a punt, Bush was pushed out of bounds and slipped on a slab of concrete just outside the playing field.
Reggie tore his lateral meniscus — a serious injury — which ended his season.
RB filed a lawsuit against the Rams in 2016 — accusing them of stupidly installing a ring of concrete around the field … creating a big risk for players in cleats.
Last week the trial started … and the jury awarded Reggie a massive payout Tuesday. Bush is set to get $4.95 million in compensatory damages — money he was given to cover lost earnings … and $7.5 million in punitive damages.
We reached out to the Rams for comment … so far, no word back.
