Patriots | T. Jones claims team doctors cut short his career

Jessica Fargen, of the Boston Herald, reports former New England Patriots FS Tebucky Jones has filed a lawsuit claiming team doctors and other parties failed to diagnose his career-ending knee injury that he suffered in 2006 during the preseason. Jones claims Dr. Thomas J. Gill IV, head physician for the Patritos, and Dr. Bertram Zarins, another team physician, did not inform him he suffered a severe tear to his knee ligament. According to his suit, Jones claims that "the failure to diagnose his injuries led to his wrongful release by the New England Patriots and consequential loss of income." Jones was sent for an MRI, which showed a chronic tear of the ACL and a hamstring injury, according to Jones' medical records. Jones claims that when he met with Gill and Zarins, they told him he had a hamstring injury and recommended ice and strengthening exercises. Jones feels if Gill and Zarins had told him about the ACL damage, he could have undergone surgery and continued his career.
