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.

Geronimo dont say that to Dolphin Disciple, he will get mad at your racist comment against white people. He is the fool who said the Irish have suffered more than the blacks.

Who shot NJ?

That's too funny!

I can just see the wheels turning in soiled's head as we type.

NJ have you ever had the feeling you fell off the boat into the middle of a shark infested feeding frenzy?

NJ i will see you at your gym some night when you are closing. That is all I am going to say.

Yo Geronimo keep your head up

Geronimo,

You ever notice how white people like to say they 1/8 "insert indian tribe here."


:)

Geronimo, In who shot NJ they will need a list of unusual suspects: Cuban Menace-fat security guard, Dying Breed-pencil neck geek, carlito-angry little hispanic, 1701972-wierdo conspiracy buff, marc-drag queen, list goes on and on.

Fellas, was on a conferance call when the NFL Network guys were talkin Phins. Anything interesting said? Or was it a new york/new england blowfest?

There was no racism in my comment, only reality.
I have no time for racism and no sympathy for racists.
I don't know who suffered more but almost all ethnic groups have suffered at one time or another.
I grew up half Apache and half Norwegian in a Black and Mexican ghetto on the Southside of Chicago. That was suffering.
I like to joke around here and I even like to argue sometimes, but racism to me is not funny.

Pac,

Dey got da tree in Cuba?

My Jamaican Boy says duh stuff dey grow down dere gets as big as trees Mon!

Carlito, you're an F'n tool through and through. Why is it, then, that ALL discussions in Mando's posts stray significantly from football talk? Is it because they're about cover 2 or 3-4? Nah. Far be it from me to expect football talk in a football blog. Douche.

Dishpan,

You think you might be being a little harsh there?
The only thing you just posted even slightly related to football was rhetorical question sandwhiched in between two personal insults.

Dishpan? No! You're more like a pot. The pot that's calling the kettle black.

Dishpan,

Excuse me for wasting a joke on an idiot... Sarcasm doesn't translate through type I guess... Don't see you dropping any football knowledge on this blog about a big toe

Lame, no pun intended. All hail the posession receiver, former first round draft pick ,under achiever to work the system. Congrats OJ, you have something in common with your hero, who also got away with something.

No rhetoric there buddy, nice try. Carlito knows I was joking. Woulda been a bit harsh, though

Maybe carlito didn't know I was joking. I'll include a smiley face next time

Yeah Carlito,

Stay on topic!

So anyways.......i heard OJ has athletes feet and goiters all the time now.

And that corn, he just can't seem to get rid of that corn..........

And.......and..........
