Charles Chandler, of the Charlotte Observer, reports a judge has ruled that if former NFL WR Patrick Jeffers pursues any action against the Carolina Panthers, he must do so via the NFL's grievance system rather than in court. Jeffers included the Panthers in a lawsuit he filed in Aug. 2003 against former Panthers' orthopedist Dr. Donald D'Alessandro and the Miller Orthopaedic Clinic. The Panthers filed a motion to require Jeffers to stand by the NFL collective-bargaining agreement, which says that player disputes with a team generally should be handled as a grievance before an arbitrator. Jeffers' attorney argued that the CBA didn't apply to the case. Jeffers' suit alleged that D'Alessandro performed five unauthorized surgical procedures on his knees during an August 2000 surgery that led to the premature end of his NFL career. D'Alessandro denied the allegations in court papers, saying he had appropriate authorization for all procedures performed on Jeffers.
