TAMPA, Fla. Chidobe Awuzie Cowboys Jersey . -- A doctor retained by Alex Rodriguez for a second opinion -- one that contradicted the New York Yankees diagnosis of his leg injury Wednesday -- was reprimanded this year by New Jerseys board of medical examiners over steroid prescriptions. Rodriguez is one of more than a dozen players under investigation by Major League Baseball for alleged ties to a Florida clinic accused of distributing performance-enhancing drugs. The New Jersey State Board of Medical Examiners filed an order of reprimand against Dr. Michael Gross on Feb. 13 for his conduct at his Active Center for Health & Wellness. "The board ordered and Dr. Gross agreed to be formally reprimand(ed) for permitting an individual who had completed medical school but did not have a medical license to participate in the care and treatment of patients at the centre and failing to adequately ensure proper patient treatment involving the prescribing of hormones including steroids at the centre," according to the disciplinary summary on the New Jersey Attorney Generals division of consumer affairs website. The orthopedist was fined $30,000 and ordered to pay $10,000 in costs. The New York Daily News first reported the reprimand Wednesday and said MLB would expand its drug probe to examine Rodriguezs relationship with Gross. Rodriguez was diagnosed Sunday with a strained left quadriceps on the final day of his injury rehabilitation assignment. At the time, the Yankees said the three-time MVP was examined by team physician Dr. Christopher Ahmad at New York-Presbyterian Hospital, where an MRI was performed. The team said Rodriguez had a grade one strain, which is the least severe type, and would return to Tampa for rest and treatment. But Gross said during an interview on WFAN radio Wednesday that he examined Rodriguezs scan earlier in the day. "To be perfectly honest, I dont see any sort of injury there," Gross said. "Its such a small thing that you might not see it on an MRI." He added: "I asked him does anything hurt? And he said no." Gross never personally examined Rodriguez and based his diagnosis on the MRI. He didnt return a telephone message left at his office. Under baseballs collective bargaining agreement, a player must inform his team in writing of his decision to obtain a second medical opinion. The Yankees said Rodriguez retained Gross without notifying them. "As always, we will follow the rules and regulations set forth in the Basic Agreement, and will again re-evaluate Alex in Tampa tomorrow, as our goal is to return him to the lineup as soon as he is medically capable of doing so," general manager Brian Cashman said in a statement. Cashman said Rodriguez complained of "tightness" in the quadriceps July 12 "and therefore refused to consent to the transfer of his assignment" from Class A Tampa to Triple-A Scranton. He said Rodriguez complained of stiffness again Sunday, which led to the MRI. Rodriguez arrived at the Yankees minor league complex Wednesday and spent a little over four hours there. "I feel great. Thats all Ive got to say." he said when he left, rolling down a window of the SUV he was riding in. Then he rolled up the window, gave a thumbs up as it closed and departed. Rodriguez, who turns 38 on Saturday, had been recovering from hip surgery in January. He hit .250 (8 for 40) with two homers and eight RBIs in 13 minor league games before the leg injury. Outfielder Curtis Granderson, coming back from a broken pinkie, talked with Rodriguez in the clubhouse. "I saw him briefly as soon as I came in," Granderson said. "He wanted to come hit with us, but he had to get some stuff taken care of. Almost like a kid out at recess, they had to stop him. You cant go yet. But its all good signs knowing that hes eager and ready" to return. Granderson said Rodriguez was in a good mood. "Smiling, talking," Granderson said. "Doesnt seem any different than what Ive seen in the past." NOTES: Granderson, expected back in early August, says he will start a minor rehab assignment Thursday night with Class A Tampa and will be evaluated at the end of the weekend. ...

Woodson said during a radio interview Thursday that the Knicks Carmelo Anthony doesnt get the same calls as other superstars. LOS ANGELES RAMS (7-9)OPEN CAMP: July 27 (rookies), July 29 (veterans), Irvine, CaliforniaLAST YEAR: Rams bade farewell to St. Louis with 12th consecutive non-winning season and 11th straight non-playoff season. While defense was solid and rookie running back Todd Gurley became star, they also fielded NFLs worst offense and worst passing game. Attendance sagged while losses mounted and relocation became increasingly probable. Rams announced plans to return to California in January.IMPORTANT ADDITIONS: QB Jared Goff, CB Coty Sensabaugh, TE Tyler Higbee, WR Pharoh Cooper.IMPORTANT LOSSES: CB Janoris Jenkins, DB Rodney MacLeod, LB James Laurinaitis, DLs Chris Long and Nick Fairley.CAMP NEEDS: Aside from finding out whether Goff is ready to be immediate starter, Rams must identify and train replacements for defensive regulars lost to free agency and cost-cutting measures. Ryan Switzer Womens Jersey. Alec Ogletree taking over middle linebacker responsibilities of Laurinaitis, leading tackler in franchise history. E.J. Gaines or Sensabaugh should step up to take Jenkins starting job.EXPECTATIONS: Rams returning to Coliseum with tremendous amount of local excitement, and they signaled their desperation to win now by mortgaging chunk of future to draft Goff. Yet Los Angeles stuck in division with two of NFLs best teams, and leagues worst offense probably cant be magically fixed by rookie quarterback and little else. Rams would love to end playoff drought during homecoming season, but theyll need some good breaks.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
