Dodgers’ team doctor to appear on NFL telecasts beginning Sunday.

Dr. Neal ElAttrache, the Dodgers’ team physician, will be part of CBS Sports’ National Football League coverage beginning Sunday.

The network announced Tuesday that Dr. ElAttrache “will be on-call all season analyzing and explaining injuries and interpreting injury reports, beginning with CBS Sports’ NFL kickoff on Sunday, Sept. 9.”

Here’s more from the CBS release:

Voted by his peers as one of the “Best Doctors in America” since 2006, Dr. ElAttrache has operated on some of the top athletes in the game today, including Tom Brady during his knee surgery in 2008. Currently, he is Chairman of the Kerlan Jobe Orthopaedic Foundation and Director of Sports Medicine Fellowship. ElAttrache also is the team physician for the Los Angeles Dodgers, and serves as an orthopaedic consultant for the Anaheim Mighty Ducks, PGA Tour, Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Kings. In addition, he is a member of the NFL Physicians Society, America Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and National Orthopaedic Education Society.

“Dr. ElAttrache has impeccable credentials and standing in the medical profession and the world of sports medicine,” said McManus. “Analyzing and assessing injuries are often important storylines throughout the season, adding Neal’s expertise and opinions to our broadcasts will give our viewers a new and unique perspective into the player’s injuries and recovery.”
