A former Dallas Cowboys player who was inside the team's indoor practice facility when it collapsed last year claims he suffered a career-ending injury in the disaster and is seeking damages from the builder and companies operated by team owner Jerry Jones.
Jamar Hunt says in a court filing that he suffered "serious, disabling and permanent injuries" when the tent-like structure fell in May 2009. Hunt was a rookie free agent from the University of Texas at El Paso trying to make the team as a tight end and deep snapper at the time.
Hunt's attorney, Michael Guajardo, said the player suffered a herniated disk in his neck when a steel support fell on him.
Cowboys spokesman Rich Dalrymple said the team isn't commenting on Hunt's claim.
