Saints Fire Team Doctors Who Misdiagnosed Player's Broken Leg

Saints Fire Team Doctors Who Misdiagnosed Player's Broken Leg

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.

The New Orleans Pelicans and New Orleans Saints share an ownership group, executives, a facilities campus and office personnel, but they aren't entirely tied together. Breaux will have to undergo surgery and if not for the misdiagnosis he could have done so already. Jeff Duncan of the Times-Picayune said the Pelicans have been frustrated with their medical staff for almost a decade. The team has a marketing relationship with Ochsner, but Payton says they are not required to use their doctors and won't commit to doing so in the future. "You're not going to bat 1.000 but you just hope, more often than not, you're getting the right information". Suri will continue to work with the National Basketball Association club, people familiar with the decision told The Associated Press. He is now the team physician for the New Orleans Pelicans and University of New Orleans.

The New Orleans Saints have finally figured out what has been taking so long for cornerback Delvin Breaux to heal. Breaux was found to have a fractured fibula after the team doctors diagnosed him with a contusion.
