The former Houston Texans and Philadelphia Eagles linebacker, DeMeco Ryans has decided to sue the Houston Texans and the NFL for his November 2, 2014, injury.
In 2014, the Eagles beat the Houston Texans at at NRG Stadium and during the game, DeMeco intercepted the Texans quarter back, Ryan Fitzpatrick at the Eagles 10, but was injured during the play. This is when DeMeco suffered a torn Achilles tendon.
DeMeco’s lawsuit claims that his injury “prematurely ended his noteworthy NFL career,” and he says that if he wasn’t injured in 2014, then he would have, “in reasonable probability, remained in the league for another five years.”
DeMeco’s lawsuit didn’t end there because he is also naming Harris County Convention Sports Court and stadium management company SMG as defendants.
History shows that DeMeco ruptured his left Achilles four years earlier at NRG when he playing with the Houston Texans.
DeMeco’s left Achilles rupture occurred in the same spot too, the 10-yard line in the north end and it was a non-contact injury to.
DeMeco’s lawsuit alleges that it took Jadeveon Clowney’s 2014 knee injury on the filed for them to fix the issue with their turf… Saying, “Then, and only then, was it time for Defendants to fix the problem.”
In 2012, the Texans former punter Brett Hartmann sued SMG and the Harris County Convention and Sports Corporation after he too suffered a career-ending ACL injury and his case was settled out of court.
Another NFL player was injured there too… The former New England Patriots wide receiver We Welker also tore his ACL in a 2010, game at NRG stadium.
After Welker’s injury, Bill Belichick blasted NRG’s playing conditions on a Boston radio station and here is a little of what he said too… “The turf downs there is terrible. It’s terrible. It’s just inconsistent.”
