    Armond Armstead and USC have settled his lawsuit against the school, a team doctor and a medical center.

    The former Trojan defensive end was suing because he said he suffered a heart attack in 2011 due to the overuse of Toradol. The painkiller was prescribed by USC's team doctor, James Tibone, who said in a court deposition that he didn't agree with the FDA cardiovascular warnings regarding the drug.
