Beckman currently faces allegations from former Illinois player Simon Cvijanovic of forcing the lineman to play with a knee injury while withholding medical information, and other forms of "abuse and misuse of power."
In 2013, Toledo offensive lineman Kyle Cameron sued Beckman, five members of his staff and the university after a senior-led off-season workout left him medically disqualified to play football.
The case was dismissed by a Lucas County judge, which sided with the school, contending the suit had been filed to the wrong division of the court; the ruling was then upheld by an appeals court. Cameron's attorney asked the Supreme Court of Ohio to review the case back in January. Cameron has also sued in the "proper" division and may still receive a date in court.
"According to records, the July 12, 2011, "O-Line Challenge" required linemen — not wearing helmets — to run and jump off the backs of other linemen, who were on their hands and knees, and dunk a football over the crossbar of the goal post," according to the Tribune. "While trying to dunk the football, Cameron allegedly fell and hit his head on the ground, possibly after also hitting it on the goal post, and was concussed."
