— After Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul severely damaged his hand in a fireworks accident last July, ESPN’s Adam Schefter was on top of the story, tweeting out a copy of Pierre-Paul’s medical records to prove that the player had his right index finger amputated.
“This action arises out of ESPN reporter Schefter’s blatant disregard for the private and confidential nature of Plaintiff’s medical records,” the lawsuit states, “all so Schefter could show the world that he had ‘supporting proof’ of a surgical procedure.”
The lawsuit does not indicate how much money Pierre-Paul seeks except to say it’s “an action for damages in excess of $15,000.”
According to previous media reports, Pierre-Paul is believed to have already reached a settlement with Jackson Memorial Hospital, which fired two employees for inappropriately accessing the player’s health record.
Pierre-Paul missed the first half of the season but returned to start New York’s final eight games, playing with his hand wrapped for protection. He finished with one sack. He had another surgery on the hand after the season.
According to the complaint, the woman called 911 from wide receiver Drae Bowles’ car in the early morning hours of Nov. 16, 2014. Later that day, Bowles was punched in the mouth by teammate Curt Maggitt in the locker room. The following day, Bowles was confronted by teammates Geraldo Orta and Marlin Lane.
The complaint states that when Bowles called coach Butch Jones about the first incident, Jones told the player he had “betrayed the team.” Although the coach later called back to apologize, he did not discipline any of the players. Bowles transferred to Chattanooga after the season.
The woman’s accusation led to linebacker A.J. Johnson and defensive back Michael Williams being arrested and indicted on aggravated rape charges in February of last year.
After reviewing the amended complaint, Tennessee issued a statement from university lawyer Bill Ramsey defending its behavior.
“The facts, as opposed to allegations in a complaint, will demonstrate that the University acted properly in the matters at issue,” the statement read. “We have continuously worked hard to improve our processes and our procedures to ensure that we are doing all that we can to prevent incidents of assault, to support victims of assault and to pursue justice while ensuring due process for those accused. We will vigorously defend all claims in the amended complaint.”
“There is no hurry here,” coach Gary Kubiak said Wednesday from the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis.
Kubiak said general manager John Elway has had some conversations with Manning, and the coach spoke with Manning on Tuesday.
“We want him to take his time and we’ll work from there,” Kubiak said. “Nothing has changed.”
Meanwhile, Kubiak spoke highly of Brock Osweiler, who went 5-2 last season while Manning was hurt but was replaced for the team’s Super Bowl run.
“He did a heck of a job for us. He started seven games for us. He played against some really good people in some tough situations. He played very well. I think he has a bright future,” Kubiak said. “Obviously we think the world of him. We want him to be a part of our football team.”

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “There were a lot of issues. I spent at least two months looking under the hood and came to the conclusion that we needed to make changes.
