One free agent NFL player is still waiting for his next team to play with in 2023, but in the meantime, he had a huge announcement this week.
Former Tennessee Titans left tackle Taylor Lewan made a major announcement on Tuesday that he was filing a lawsuit against the “doctor/entities” that performed the reconstructive surgery on his torn ACL in 2020.
Lewan publicly disclosed the case on his Bussin with the Boys podcast, citing unethical handling of the treatment by the doctors and other parties.
“I have filed a lawsuit alleging that the doctor/entities who did my surgery during the 2020 season did it incorrectly.”
The 31-year-old tore the ACL in his right knee in a Titans’ victory over the Houston Texans in Week 6 of the 2020 season. He would return to his role in 2021, but did miss time during the season with knee issues, but he started 14 games including Tennessee’s playoff loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.
After starting the first two games last season, Lewan suffered another torn ACL in his right knee.
The three-time Pro Bowler said on the podcast last season he found out there were “things with my knee going on now that are a direct correlation to what happened when I got my knee done” in 2020.
“I have to go and get my knee fixed to be able to play football or live, like, a normal life just in general,” he added.
Prior to the multiple injuries to his knee, Lewan was one of the best offensive tackles in the NFL.
The Titans released Lewan in February. He was the No. 11 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft and appeared in 105 games over the past nine seasons.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
