  Titans | Givens' lawsuit against team dismissed    Thu Feb 11, 06:06 PM

Jim Wyatt, of the Tennessean, reports a federal judge has dismissed former NFL WR David Givens' $25 million lawsuit against the Tennessee Titans. The judge said that Givens had to go through arbitration under the NFL's collective bargaining agreement. Givens filed the suit alleging the Titans knowingly withheld medical information from him and encouraged him to play despite being advised that a knee condition could not withstand the rigors of NFL competition.

  Titans | D. Givens sues team for $25 million    Wed Sep 23, 09:31 AM

Jim Wyatt and Gary Estwick, of The Tennessean, report former Tennessee Titans WR David Givens filed a $25 million lawsuit against the team Tuesday, Sept. 22, alleging it knowingly withheld medical information from him and encouraged him to play despite being advised that a knee condition could not withstand the rigors of NFL competition. Givens claims he should have been informed of the results of an examination by Dr. Tomas Byrd, an independent orthopedic surgeon who checked Givens before he signed a five-year contract in March 2006. The suit claims that Byrd determined that Givens 'may need surgery at some point' and that he probably would not be able to play a full NFL season because of a large defect on the medial femoral condyle, where the upper leg bone connects to the joint in the knee.
