Houston WR Edwards to Sue Marshall University

By  | 

Houston receiver Patrick Edwards, who broke his leg when he ran into a metal service cart in a game at Marshall last year, plans to play this season.

Edwards also said Monday he will pursue legal action against Marshall.

He was running full speed for a long pass when his right shin crashed into the cart just beyond the end zone.

The sophomore tells Houston television station KRIV that he's
confident he can return at full strength. He was Houston's leading
receiver with 634 yards when he was injured.

Marshall officials apologized after the incident, and several Thundering Herd players visited Edwards in the hospital.
