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.

I knew some Vato that got a beatdown for trying to get his Toe in someones old lady. They jumped the fence at the apartments and jumped into the Spa. They were partying with some Boons Farm and smoking a big fat Lenyo. Lstening to some oldies. Marvin Gayes Lets Get it On Came on the Ghetto Blaster. The fool started trying to poke is Big Toe up the Rucas under the water. Pinche Guey missed and drove it up some OG's fundio. They searched the bushes for that Toe after the dude sliced it off with his Filero. That Vato now walks with a messed up limp. You ain't getting millions in the Barrio for a Toe. THE END.

Always liked McDuffie. It's a shame his career got ended early because of this.

So his Sgt. Hulka is worth 11.5 mil, huh?

NJ was sup? Payaso called u out!!

Terrell Owens just tweete he is Miami Bound. Whatever that means.

Armando, anything to this?

Can't we just trust our peers, the jury, to make the right decision. They heard all of the evidence and you uneducated, over opinionated, envious, and bitter people didn't. Support the troops and support your judicial system. Isn't that what we are fighting for. Footnote: see your Constitution and the clause that grants you the right to access to the courts. Acceptance is the answer to all your bitterness today.

Just heard Mando on Jorge Sedano! Mando, I will protect your 1st Amendment with my 2nd Amendment! Good stuff!

not sure who Hot Ashley, but she sounds hot

I always thought big toes were something that could not be fixed. this seems really whacked to me.

No wonder McDuffie won. It was tried in Miami. Urine shouldve motioned to have the case transfered to New York!!

Dear Mr. Salguero

Is this blog located near a Navy shipyard ?
After midnight this place is loaded with drunk sailors swearing left and right.

For any fellow Phin fans who have not been to this blog after midnight here's acouple of pointers.

Walk briskly and keep your head down.

Try not to make eye contact with any of the other posters.

Let others know you are comming to this blog and when you should be home.

Have emergancy contact information on your body in case somthing goes wrong.

If possible have a blog buddy come with you.(strength in numbers)

Watch what you say...some of these ruffians are just looking for a reason to start a fight.

Well I hope these little pointers help other Phin fans navigate your blog after midnight.

You really should move this blog to a nicer part of the internet.

Soiled :)

payaso del carajo,

You are a liar. I never said that BS. You make bold face lies through misinformation because you have no reasonable argument. You have no honor or soul. I will pray for you.

Dolphin D who said the part about the Irish thing? It was yesterday. I am glad that u will pray for me. You have issues with this race thing.

Good for McDuffie...He too got off to a slow start as a Dolphin but really became VERY good until this injury. I would say this settlement is fair based on loss wages as a result of this malpractice.
