DALLAS (AP) -The wife of former Dallas Cowboys running back Ron Springs is suing two doctors she accuses of letting her husband slip into a coma last October.
The medical malpractice lawsuit filed Tuesday by Adriane Springs seeks unspecified damages.
Ron Springs appeared to have been improving after receiving a new kidney from ex-teammate Everson Walls in March. Springs suffered from Type 2 diabetes, which forced the amputation of his right foot.
But Springs, 51, has remained in a coma since an October 12 surgery that relatives believed was a routine procedure to remove a 2-centimeter cyst on his left forearm.
Named in the suit are Dr. Joyce Abraham, Dr. David Godat and the Texas Anesthesia Group.
The suit alleges that Springs began having difficulty breathing as he received anesthesia, and that doctors used drugs to induce him into a paralyzed state in order to intubate him.
According to the suit, the intubation failed and Springs went into cardiopulmonary arrest before being resuscitated.
Springs remains non-responsive to verbal commands, the suit said, and is in a ``persistent mentally and physically incapacitated state due to severe anoxic brain injury.''
