A former professional football player is suing Dr. James Andrews and his practice. The lawyer for xx-Minnesota Vikings defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd, says his client suffered permanent nerve and muscle damage in his leg as the result of a 2016 surgery performed at the Andrews Institute for Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, and that he was “negligently administered a pain blocker,” which caused the damage to his right leg. Floyd, whose career ended in 2016, is seeking $180 million in damages. The 26-year-old was selected with the 23rd pick of the 2013 draft after attending the University of Florida.
