Browns sued by former player

From the Associated Press:

CLEVELAND (AP) — Former Cleveland Browns receiver Joe Jurevicius is suing the team and the Cleveland Clinic, accusing doctors of negligence over a staph infection in his right knee that kept him off the field last year.
Shannon Polk, an attorney for Jurevicius, said the lawsuit was filed Friday in Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court. It alleges that team physicians failed to warn Jurevicius that therapy equipment was not always cleaned at the team’s training facility.
Jurevicius has said he contracted staph following arthroscopic surgery at the Cleveland Clinic in January 2008.
Messages seeking comment were left Friday for a Browns spokesman and the Cleveland Clinic.
Jurevicius was released by the Browns in March.
