Former NFL Player Michael Cox Awarded $28.5M After Claiming A Physician Ended His Career

American football is one of the country’s favorite pastimes. While it is entertaining to watch, the game’s physicality is rough on the players. From hard tackles to equilibrium imbalances, the propensity for injury is inevitable. Unfortunately, former New York Giants Michael Cox knows this tale all too well. During a 2014 game against the Seattle Seahawks, Cox was tackled, leading to a severe injury that left him with a broken leg, damaged cartilage, and injured ankle, according to court documents. After undergoing surgery with prominent physician Dr. Dean Lorich, Cox was allegedly not entirely whole. Cox asserts that because his ankle was not fully repaired, the injury ended his career. Michael Cox then sued Dr. Lorich in 2016, and a recent verdict revealed that Cox was awarded $28.5 million in the case.

Former Miami Dolphins Coach Brian Flores Files Lawsuit Against The NFL, Teams For Alleged 'Racism In Hiring'

Is this how we’re kicking off Black History Month? Former Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores will officially sue the National Football League (NFL) for “racism in hiring” per reports from ESPN. He will also sue individual teams for the same alleged racist practices, which include the Denver Broncos, the New York Giants, and the Dolphins. “God has gifted me with a special talent to coach the game of football, but the need for change is bigger than my personal goals,” said Flores in a statement surrounding the news. “In making the decision to file the class action complaint today, I understand that I may be risking coaching the game that I love and that has done so much for my family and me. My sincere hope is that by standing up against systemic racism in the NFL, others will join me to ensure that positive change is made for generations to come.”
