    Bills' Everett likely to be paralyzed after 'catastrophic' neck injury

    By JOHN WAWROW, AP Sports Writer

    September 10, 2007

    ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -- 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 Monday said.

    "A best-case scenario is full recovery, but not likely," orthopedic surgeon Andrew Cappuccino said. "I believe there will be some permanent neurologic deficit."

    Everett was hurt Sunday after he ducked his head while tackling the Denver Broncos' Domenik Hixon during the second-half kickoff. Everett dropped face-first to the ground after his helmet hit Hixon high on the left shoulder and side of the helmet

    It seems so many times the worst injuries come on innocuous looking hits... they have to accumulative.

    This is very sad and I feel for any football player that has a life changing injury.

    ESPN is reporting the doctor said he may walk again! He may even walk out of the hospital.
