New York Giants Player Suing Doctor for Malpractice After Suffering from a Collapsed Lung

New York Giants backup quarterback Tyrod Taylor is suing a Los Angeles Chargers team doctor and his clinic for malpractice, alleging a painkiller shot administered by the physician in 2020 caused Taylor’s lung to collapse and sidelined him in favor of Justin Herbert.

The lawsuit, which was filed in May 2021 and amended several times since, does not ask for a specific amount of money but asserts that the difference between a starting and backup quarterback in the NFL is $5 million annually, and often more.

Taylor was “prevented and/or limited in following his profession as an NFL starting quarterback, and has, therefore, suffered past and future loss of earnings and diminution of earning capacity,” the complaint says, adding that “injuries caused him to lose his position as the starting quarterback for the Los Angeles Chargers for the 2020 NFL season.”
