Misdiagnosis Leads to Dismissal of Saints’ Orthopedists
The New Orleans Saints had made it clear they were frustrated with Delvin Breaux's penchant for being injured.
But now it's been revealed that one of Breaux's injuries was misdiagnosed, a finding that had led to the firing of orthopedists Derek Jones and Misty Suri.
Breaux had a fracture in his fibula that was originally diagnosed as a bruise. Breaux will undergo surgery and will miss four to six weeks. A source told espn.com there had been other instances of frustration with the medical staff in the past, and head coach Sean Payton was reportedly livid over the latest news.
