Doctors are now saying Buffalo Bills Tight End Kevin Everett is expected to walk again after suffering a spinal injury in Sunday’s game against the Denver Broncos.

I’m glad to hear that the diagnosis of Everett has changed for the better. As a fan, you hate to see a player suffer such a devastating injury like this.  To be a professional athlete and have it taken away in an instant is a very scary thing to deal with. I give Everett’s doctors all the credit in the world for taking all the neccessary precautions and procedures to increase the chances of Everett making a full recovery.

Read a bit about what they did for him immediately after the hit, including giving him cold water IV’s and administering meds to reduce the swelling, etc. Sounds like whomever was tending to him knew exactly what to do before they even got him into surgery. Saved his life and, apparently, a lot of his quality of life as well. Great news.

One of the great things about this change in Everett’s diagnosis is that the procedure used to increase his potential ability to walk again can be used to treat other persons in society who may face this kind of traumatic injury.

I was very glad to hear that the prognosis has been upgraded for the better. From what was reported, these doctors and trainers seemed to do everything right. Every precaution was taken and treatment was administered as soon as Everett was put into the ambulance which doctors are saying was the key to his positive prognosis. Let’s hope that this new IMMEDIATE method of treatment will be practiced to prevent all severe spinal injuries in the future. I hope that Everett has a full recovery and look forward to seeing him WALK on the field very soon.

Sobering reminder of how dangerous football can be. I am praying that the young man has a complete recovery.
