The Los Angeles Rams have been ordered to pay Reggie Bush $12.45 million in damages for a knee injury he suffered in St. Louis in 2015.

Bush slipped on concrete and suffered a torn lateral meniscus. 

"I'm very happy with the verdict," Bush told the Post-Dispatch after the verdict. "The people spoke and decided very fairly."

A week before Bush suffered his injury, Cleveland Browns quarterback Josh McCown had been hurt on the same slab of concrete, sliding across it and into a wall and injuring his shoulder.

The St. Louis jury ordered the Rams to pay Bush $4.95 million in compensatory damages and $7.5 million in punitive damages.

Bush briefly returned to the NFL in 2016 with the Bills.
