A woman has sued Nebraska coach Bo Pelini's foundation and offensive coordinator Tim Beck, alleging she suffered brain injuries while participating in a drill at a football clinic put on by the foundation two years ago. Beverly Morgan said in the lawsuit filed Tuesday in Lancaster County Court that she fell and hit the back of her head while running with a football through two lines of women holding blocking pads. The lawsuit says Beck oversaw the drill and failed to make sure Morgan received medical treatment. Morgan says she had headaches, slurred speech and memory loss, among other problems. She's asking for $92,500 in medical costs and punitive damages. Messages were left Wednesday for Morgan's attorney and an attorney handling the case for the foundation.
