Broncos LB Aaron Patrick sues NFL, Chargers, ESPN over season-ending ACL tear

The Denver Broncos linebacker filed a lawsuit on Tuesday naming defendants including the NFL, ESPN and the Los Angeles Chargers, citing negligence that allegedly resulted in the injury. SoFi Stadium, Kroenke Sports & Entertainment and the Roe mat company are also among the several defendants listed in the lawsuit.

The injury took place during Denver's Oct. 17 road game against the Chargers. Patrick's momentum carried him out of bounds at the end of a play. He ran into a sideline worker then fell while stepping on a rubber mat.


Come to think of it, I am surprised this has not occurred more often or sooner. I wonder what hidden clauses are in the contracts of these guys. What does the NFLPA have to chime in not his?

Wasn't there a Saints player who got hit by a golf car driven by the other teams mascot at an away game? I seem to remember it being during warm ups before the 2nd half.

Edit: McPherson in Tennessee. He sued, didn't see what came of the lawsuit.
