Dr. Suri will still retain his post as team physician for the New Orleans Pelicans, and the company will continue to work with both organizations.

Delvin Breaux #40 of the New Orleans Saints reacts after an incomplete pass agains the New York Giants at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on November 1, 2015 in New Orleans, Louisiana. Breaux will undergo surgery and will miss four to six weeks. Apparently there had been other "incidents of frustration" with team medical staff in the past, and this was the "final straw".

"I think it's not one event, it probably builds up over a period of time", coach Sean Payton said when asked about the decision to fire the doctors.

"It was accurately reported that the team has had an issue with Breaux's string of nagging injuries in the past, but this case is different", Triplett wrote. Suri will continue to work with the National Basketball Association club, people familiar with the decision told The Associated Press. A broken fibula (the same injury he's now dealing with, but not believed to be a re-occurrence) and shoulder injury shortened his second campaign to just six games. A second opinion found there was actually a fracture in the fibula that would cause Breaux to miss 4-6 weeks. He was expected to be the Saints' third or fourth corner heading into this season.

Breaux, who also dealt with a shoulder injury, only played in sixh games last season.
