Lawsuit against Ole Miss settles questions, opens door to changes

A settlement has been reached in a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the family of an Ole Miss football player.

Bennie and Erma Abram of Southaven sued Ole Miss in 2011 over the death of their son during a February 2010 football practice.

The couple alleged the university didn’t follow workout guidelines for players with sickle-cell trait. They say 20-year-old Bennie Abram III was unaware he had the trait, which can deform red blood cells after strenuous exercise.
