Kevin Everett sustained a “catastrophic” and life-threatening spinal-cord injury while trying to make a tackle during the Buffalo Bills‘ season opener and is unlikely to walk again, the surgeon who operated on him said Monday.
“A best-case scenario is full recovery, but not likely,” orthopedic surgeon Andrew Cappuccino said. “I believe there will be some permanent neurologic deficit.”
Can you believe that? That is just the worst possible news you can ever receive. Imagine not being able to play football when that is what you do for a living.
