Saints fire two orthopedists after misdiagnosis of CB Delvin Breaux

Last season, Breaux broke the fibular in his left leg in Week 1, which forced him to miss six consecutive games.

The Saints have fired team orthopedists Deryk Jones and Misty Suri, according to's Mike Triplett, after cornerback Delvin Breaux was discovered to have a broken fibula following the original diagnosis that it was just a bruise.

It was reported this week that the Saints were disillusioned with Breaux and perhaps looking to move him following a series of injuries.

Breaux is expected to undergo surgery and could miss 4-6 weeks. The ESPN writer echoes reports that the Saints have been frustrated with the 27-year-old's nagging injury history, but writes at this point, it is unlikely that the team will try to trade or release the cornerback.

This is an unfortunate situation for the Saints to be so close to the start of the regular season, but at least they now have some solid answers.

Doctors, like the rest of us, make mistakes. That's why second opinions are always important, and it sounds like a misdiagnosis in this case led Breaux's employer to believe he was milking a minor injury. You can understand why that was considered a fireable offense.
