COLUMBUS, Ohio -- A former Bowling Green redshirt player has sued the university, head football coach Dave Clawson and team trainers over head injuries he says he received during practice that could have been prevented and were not treated properly.

In a filing in Common Pleas Court, Cody Silk, who joined the team in August 2010, says he had short-term memory loss and other symptoms after sustaining "multiple concussions." He eventually dropped out of school and his scholarship was revoked.

The suit alleges that Bowling Green violated NCAA concussion and head trauma protocols.

Silk seeks in excess of $25,000 to cover medical expenses, pain and suffering, loss of future earnings, emotional distress and the value of his scholarship.

The university did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
