Former National Football League player Sharrif K. Floyd, whose career ended after knee surgery, sued a Sompo International Holding Co. unit, a The Doctors Co. unit, Marsh USA Inc. and USI Insurance Services LLC, charging a $10 million shortfall in insurance proceeds.

The defensive lineman, who was a first-round pick in the 2013 NFL draft, was playing for the Minnesota Vikings in 2016 when he was injured and underwent a right knee arthroscopy at Andrews Institute Ambulatory Surgery Center LLC in Gulf Breeze, Florida, according to a lawsuit filed Tuesday.

The suit, Sharrif K. Floyd, individually and as assignee of the Andrews Institute Ambulatory Surgery Center, LLC v. Endurance American Specialty Insurance Co., TDC Specialty Insurance Co., USI Insurance Services LLC, and Marsh USA Inc., was filed in U.S. District Court in Gainesville, Florida.

Mr. Floyd alleges the arthroscopy surgery effectively ended his career and he filed a medical malpractice suit against the institute and others in state court.
