Michael Cox suffered a broken leg, damaged cartilage, and an injured ankle in a New York Giants game against the Seattle Seahawks in 2014.

The running back underwent surgery by Dr. Dean Lorich and the procedure allegedly failed to fully repair Cox's left ankle, basically ending his career.

Cox sued the physician and the hospital in 2016 for unspecified damages.

On Friday, Cox was awarded a $28.5 million verdict in the case.

Cox was a seventh-round pick out of Massachusetts in 2013. He had 26 carries for 76 yards as a Giant. The team had given him a four-year, $2.3 million contract.

A bizarre twist to the case saw Lorich commit suicide a year after the case was filed with a knife in his chest in his New York home.
