TAMPA, Fla. A Florida man is suing two former Tampa Bay Buccaneers players, saying they attacked him at an International House of Pancakes restaurant in Tampa nearly three months ago.

Brian Gordon says he was at an IHOP on Oct. 13, 2008, when an intoxicated Anthony Davis began yelling profanities at restaurant employees. Later, Davis, Michael Bennett and a third man allegedly attacked him the parking lot.

Gordon's attorney says his client sustained skull and jaw fractures. He is also suing IHOP and Sunshine Restaurant Merger Sub, LLC, saying employees failed to intervene and provide adequate security.

An attorney for Davis declined to comment. It was not immediately clear whether Bennett had retained counsel.

A spokesman for IHOP wouldn't comment on the specific allegations.
