Ex-NFLer going after famed doctor James Andrews for $180M

Ex-NFLer going after famed doctor James Andrews for $180M

The $180 million figure is based on the estimated amount he would have expected to earn over a long career as a pass-rusher.

The lawsuit was announced in a statement by Floyd's lawyer Brad Sohn that was obtained by NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.

Andrews allegedly told Floyd that he would undergo a minor arthroscopic procedure that would keep him sidelined for three to four weeks. The results of that procedure required Floyd to be put on a pain-blocker after the operation.

Minnesota Vikings first-round pick Shariff Floyd has not seen the field in the National Football League since Week 1 of the 2016 season, when he suffered a knee injury that ultimately ended his career.

Wang continued to dominate in the second set as she closed out the match after an hour and 13 minutes without dropping one game. She's also a delight to watch in action, there's a wow factor in every single match I watch, practice too.

The suit alleges that those administrating the pain blocker affected the procedure, paralyzing a nerve and the surrounding muscle and creating a situation where Floyd could not recover sufficiently to play football. He sat out the entire 2017 season after being limited to just one game the year before, leading the Vikings to decide not to re-sign him.

Floyd filed a grievance seeking payment of his salary from the Vikings due to their decision to place him on the non-football injury list. Teams are not obligated to pay players on that list, and can choose any compensation they wish if the player gets paid at all.

It's believed that the team and Floyd have engaged in settlement talks on the grievance. "And this lawsuit seeks to hold the parties' responsible who we allege have done so". I'm prepared to go the distance'.

Sharrif, a University of Florida product, finished with 9.5 sacks in 44 National Football League games.
