A recent wave of class-action lawsuits related to concussions has brought a former Kentucky player into the mix.  DeMoreo Ford has filed a complaint against the NCAA and the SEC.

Ford was a wide receiver for Rich Brooks starting in 2005.  The LaGrange, Ga. native caught 23 passes for 292 yards and three touchdowns, including this 70-yard bomb in the 2006 Music City Bowl against Clemson.

Ford’s career was shortened by head injuries.  Physicians advised him to retire from the sport after suffering a concussion vs. Mississippi State in November of 2009.

The most notable event mentioned in the lawsuit occurred during a 2008 game against Florida.  Ford alleges he suffered a concussion in the second quarter of the game, vomited at halftime and yet still returned to play in the third quarter.  Now, he allegedly still suffers from headaches, depression and more.

    All this concussion drama is probably going to lead to the end of football, at least the football we are familiar with today.
