Title: NFL Kevin Everett

Have y'all heard about Kevin Everett, the NFL player for the Buffalo Bills? He is (was I guess...) the tight end, so during the second half kickoff on Sunday's season opener, he tried to tackle Domenik Hixon of the Denver Broncos and to quote the CNN article, "Everett dropped face-first to the ground after his helmet hit Hixon high on the left shoulder and side of the helmet," and was paralyzed. A press conference today with his doctors indicated that he does have slight mobility in his knees (moved his knees together 1/2 inch at least, but that's something eh?) There was also mention of him being able to wiggle his toes a little and could slightly move his triceps, though he had no sensation in most of the rest of his body. Hope or not of recovery, not sure, any progress is expected to take weeks or months.

Sucks eh?

You never know when you're gonna be blind-sided by fate.
I'm trying my best to believe he'll recover.

A tad old, but yes, he is recovering very well. I dunno about football, but he does have a normal future ahead :)
