McDuffie wins $11.5 mill suit vs former team Dr.

Former Dolphins wide receiver O.J. McDuffie on Wednesday won an $11.5 judgment from a malpractice lawsuit against former Dolphins team doctor John Uribe.

A Miami-Dade Circuit jury returned the verdict after a two-and-one-half-week trial.

McDuffie accused Uribe of malpractice in the treatment of a left big toe injury he suffered in 1999. McDuffie's lawyers said an MRI showed severe ligament damage, but Dr. Uribe told McDuffie he would recover without ever informing McDuffie of the ruptured ligament.  His injury worsened as he continued to play with it. He has had two surgeries on the toe since 1999, and was released by the Dolphins on Feb. 28, 2002, after nine years. McDuffie officially retired in August of 2002.

McDuffie is said to have reached a settlement with other doctors involved in the case.

Both McDuffie and Uribe were unavailable for comment. A source said an appeal by Uribe is likely.

McDuffie played 116 games for the Dolphins from 1993 to 2000. He had 415 receptions for 5,074 yards and 29 touchdowns and also returned two punts for TDs. McDuffie, 40, was Miami's first round pick in the 1993 draft. He led the NFL with 90 catches in 1998.

Uribe was the team's chief orthopedic specialist throughout the Jimmy Johnson coaching tenure and until the final year of the Dave Wannstedt years. He is also the former team doctor for the University of Miami football team and has successfully treated patients such as Frank Gore, Willis McGahee, Javon Kearse and Shawne Merriman.

Uribe remains the team doctor for the Florida Panthers.

They said miami is improved , gave them a b+ in the draft ( they love misi ) and miami game up with 2 game closers in dansby and marshall.

It was nice of Faulk and Lombardi to say that but.........

I'm sure Mel Kiper disagrees.

Carlito , you'll be swimming in oil because obama also de - regulated BP in april of 2009 , also passed a legislation to off shore drill and was about 10 days late to say or do anything about this spill. This is his katrina. He said to off shore drill and then this happened. He looks real bad my friend. So don't give me that republican crap.

Kiper also said Russell would be an elite QB by hi 3rd year LMAO!!!

Big Black C O C K S

STOOPID JUSTIN........WHAZZUP!?!?

NJ who would rather pay higher taxes the poor hobo on the street or a rich doctor?

Aloco or fake aloco. You're stupidity never ceases to amaze me. The people who were rioting in greece were union members. The reason greece is in trouble is because of big government , to much spending and going to bed with the unions. Now they are being taxed through the roof from that big government that spended to much. Sound Familier ?? That 's because it's happening here in america too. At this rate , americak will be like greece and most of europe. Broke and people rioting. Now get a F'n clue !!

NJ Phin Fan,

I am no Obama groupie, so don't try to drag me into this politics who is worse... they are all bad... I don't care... Fact is the safety regulations and inspections were eased by George Bush in 2003 from pressure from oil company

hey geronimo...yeah us white people kicked you yellow butts and made you all move to the crappiest land in the USA..Get out og here yellow man!!!

Kiper also said Russell would be an elite QB by hi 3rd year LMAO!!!

Posted by: Fishfan | May 05, 2010 at 11:44 PM

Kiper never said this did he?

Tell the truth because I was being sarcastic when I mentioned his name.

Did he really say DUHmarcus would be elite?

Fishfan , why would i pay the hobo ?? So he can drink himself to death ?? That rich doctor might save your life on day. I don't think that hobo can do crap for you !!

nj
your mother country is full of a bunch of losers!! i bet all the gel in their hair killed all 5 of their brain cells

Yet, nothing in the health care bill on tort reform. Obama is ridiculous.

all the people are in strike in greece not just the union ,get a clue.the country in a still mode .fetta cheese can't be found .

Yup when he was drafted Kiper said Russell would be an elite QB by his 3rd...Still LMAO!!!

Carlito , i didn't drag you into anything, you dragged yourself into this debate. Which , by the way , is over for me.

Personality disorders!!!where u at Credibly Stupid Justin????Police catch u yet,uh, doctors i mean!!??!!

that's right , mrmikejohnson.

Hobo doesn't always have to be drunks.Besides the question was who would make more sense paying higher taxes to the poor hobo or the rich doctor?

Debate always over for NJ when he is wrong

nj,

That was worded wrong but you get the gist of it

hey geronimo...yeah us white people kicked you yellow butts and made you all move to the crappiest land in the USA..Get out og here yellow man!!!

Posted by: ALoco | May 05, 2010 at 11:51 PM

NJ so what's your answer to my question?

If apalachicola, everglade, and florida keys are destroy by this oil spill, this state will never recover for at least 25 years

geronimo,

Gentleman and Trolls , have a good Night. carlito , i would never want to run for office. I made a factual comment about tort reform , you could've ignored it but you cose to debate, so get out of here with YOUR CRAP BS !!!! :)

hey if the white man did not kill the indians, then there would be no dolphin football...think about that...atleast their blood went to something good

Hurry up Training Camp, cause I'm not sure how much of this non-footbal garbage I can handle! Go Fins!

Aloco,

Your people have caused my people many of sorrows.
You have stolen our sacred hunting grounds and desaecrated our burial mounds.

If not for a God in Heaven and white peoples weakness for gambling of course, we can now afford to shave all the Hot Little Pochahonta's

See ya at the Casino on payday pale face!
