Tom Tupa wins workers' comp case against Redskins
The Maryland Court of Appeals ruled that the Washington Redskins must pay Tom Tupa workers’ compensation for the back injury that ended the punter’s career six years ago.
According to the Washington Post, Tupa was injured during warmups before a preseason game in 2005. He never punted again and two years later filed a claim with the Maryland Workers’ Compensation Commission. Tupa won the claim and the Redskins appealed.
Now, Tupa stands victorious and the Redskins must pay him partial disability and medical expenses. Per the report, the former Ohio State star currently works as the recreation director at a community center in Brecksville, Ohio.
