Re: Everetts injury is pretty bad...

I suffered a somewhat similar injury in a car accident. I was temporarily knocked out (a few seconds to a minute), fractured some vertebrae, my cord was compressed by a disc, and I had to have emergency surgery to put donor bone, a titanium plate and a few screws in my neck. After I started to regain feeling, I wanted to lose it....had to be the most awful pain I ever felt. Obviously, I recovered alright, but I can distinctly recall the fear I felt when I was laying in the ER/OR totally immobilized and being told by the doctor that they had to operate or I could die. I was so damn scared that I cried; something I hadn't done in public since I was about 5.

I can't begin to express how sorry I felt for Everett when I saw the re-play. As I said in another thread, I am agnostic, but I'm praying for the guy. I hope others do as well.

Re: Everetts injury is pretty bad...

Such a sad story on opening weekend. Its tough to see anyone carted off the field, like Jansen yesterday. But he will recover and be back strong. In this case, Everett will be effected for life and doesn't look like he will regain full movement. Really sad news to hear and you can only send prayers out to him and his family. This must be the toughest of times.

Re: Everetts injury is pretty bad...

i've read lots of articles today about his injury and so far the news is not good-- his dr told him he had about 5 to 10 % chance of walking again -- after the surgery the dr said that the procedure went well and that the spinal cord and the spinal column were both 100% intact so for those of us who do pray and believe that prayer can change things , we'll continue to pray for this young man and his family - i can't even imagine what emotions they must be dealing with

Re: Everetts injury is pretty bad...

I was searching around for a clip of the hit. Found another vid of Everett on nfl.com hoping to establish himself more with the starting line up. It shows him getting pointers from Robert Royal. He seemed to be a down to earth type guy who appreciated were he was. I hope everything works out for him.

Re: Everetts injury is pretty bad...

This is why NFL salaries are "worth it" compared to other sports. This could happen to anyone. It didn't even look like a hard hit, it just hit in the wrong way.
That is my worst nightmare, and I'm sure it is a lot of people's worst nightmares. I feel absolutely terrible for Everett and his family. This is one of the worst things that could happen to them.

Wow man...I can't even imagine that.
The worst I have ever experienced was when I was a teenager playing hockey. I was checked and lost my footing and slid into the boards head first...for about 1 second I lost functions of my arms and legs, but then it came immediately back. Every time I hurt my neck, the first thing I do is move my fingers and toes because of that injury. Scary man...very scary. I'm glad you recovered fully.

Definately will pray/hope for the guy. If the spinal cord is 100% intact, my guess is that it was severely traumatized and scar tissue is forming on the cord which is disrupting signals to the rest of his body.

Re: Everetts injury is pretty bad...

Hopefully , every sports fan will have Mr. Everett and his family in their thoughts and prayers . Hopefully he can recover enough to live a good healthy long life . I believe the Ny Jets D. Byrd is still walking and has a couple of kids , hopefully Everett can also ! Lets hope to never see that again . Glad to see that Sheriff and Jsarno are doing well after your injuries , stay safe and stay strong !

Not cool...not cool at all. I hope he gets better quickly, and can at least gain enough mobility to have a normal life again. Prayers are with him and his...

OMG! That sounds like a terrible thing to go through. Glad you made a full recovery bro. And I will pray that Everett has the same fate that you had.

Re: Everetts injury is pretty bad...

having a severe injury like the sheriff or this young man have had is no fun.i have a plate in my back from spinal fusion surgery,and that hurt like hell.when i was a sr in high school,a kid from salem virginia named chance crawford was
paralyzed from the waist down after lowering his head during a tackle.one of my best friends was the guy he ran into,and it changed his life so much that he actually went to school 12 years and is now a great neurologist.i really feel for this young man,i'm sure getting paralyzed like this was the last thing he ever thought about when he went to make the tackle sunday.he's so lucky that he is in a position to have the best medical care in the world now and on the field when he was hurt.i'm praying for this kid,and i hope god touches him and we all read about his miracle recovery in his biography soon.
