Ex-Saint Suing Titans After Being Hit By Mascot
McPherson is seeking $15 million in punitive damages.
He also seeks $5 million in compensatory damages for what he called the Titans' negligence. A team spokesman said Monday the Titans are aware of the lawsuit but had no further comment.
The quarterback was on the field Aug. 12 warming up when T-Rac, the Titans' mascot played by director of mascot operations Pete Nelson, hit him with a golf cart while throwing items into the stands.
McPherson missed the rest of the game with a deep bruise in his right knee. The Saints cut him Sept. 2.
The NFL did not sanction the Titans for the incident but reminded all teams that mascots must stay outside of a 6-foot boundary around their fields.
