Former DB Jones Says a Team Doctor Cut His Career Short

The Boston Herald reports today that former Pats DB Tebucky Jones has filed a lawsuit saying that a team doctor cut his career short:

Former New England Patriots star defensive back Tebucky Jones has filed a lawsuit claiming team doctors and other parties failed to diagnose his career-ending 2006 preseason knee injury, effectively ruining his pro career, the Herald has learned. Jones, 34, claims that Dr. Thomas J. Gill IV, head physician for the Patriots and also the Red Sox medical director, and Dr. Bertram Zarins, another Patriots physician, did not inform him he suffered a severe tear to his knee ligament against the Washington Redskins on Aug. 26, 2006, at Gillette Stadium. According to his suit, filed Wednesday in Suffolk Superior Court, Jones claims that “the failure to diagnose his injuries led to his wrongful release by the New England Patriots and consequential loss of income.”
