I just read in a newspaper that he is suing the Titans, because the team's doctors didn't tell him he had an injury in his knee that caused him to end his career short.

I always wondered what happened to David givens, he was a stud with the pats.

Very surprising. How could a doctor ethically or legally tell the team something but not tell Givens himself? That would have to be a HIPAA violation of some sort.

Says the Titans pressured him back into playing earlier. I really don't know what happened, sounds kind of serious, but if it were that bad, get a second opinion if you feel your career will be threatened. Don't realize this stuff after

I think the point is that he didn't know and had no way of knowing that it was that bad. Players usually get a 2nd opinion when they get bad news, not good news.

I still don't understand how a doctor can get away with not telling a patient the news directly.
