    Truly miraculous, I was afraid he was going to be another Reggie Brown or Dennis Byrd.

    Seems once a decade this horrific injury happens to someone in the NFL.

    If he walks again he will be a living testimony.

    i was watching as well, and it's great news!

    it's wonderful the advances made medically to help deal with the initial stages of the injury to help recover, and give the increased chances of walking again after something like this.

    hopefully the recovery will continue and not have any complications, and we can see him walking in street clothes cheering on his team from the sidelines.

    Makes you wonder if Christopher Reeve may have walked again had he been hurt today instead of back in 1994.

    I hope this is true. I think the NFL should get some credit because they have been very diligent in making sure the best immediate medical care is available at all NFL stadiums for just this reason.

    i had a good feeling when they said that he had feeling in his extremities but its good to hear this especially with all the sweeling that follows an injury of this nature. For it to look this good this early is unbelievably great news.

    Great news.

    My cousin broke his neck in a wreck in Arkansas a couple of years ago. Taps has a relative who had the same thing happen. You can't even imagine the emotions his family are probably going through right now.

    Even I can't and it has happened in my family. Scott still isn't all the way back, but the knowledge he is improving helps.

    Reeve had a different kind of neck/spinal injury. He had what I believe is called a "Hangman's" injury or something like that. It's as if his head were pulled out of it's "Socket".


    Not the same.

    Maybe both sides of the God issue should just focus on how great it is that Everett might walk again - and not who or what is responsible for that.

    Go Everett!

    Everett deserves a lot of credit as well. Some give up when faced with adversity.

    I thought he was to be kept sedated for the next few days.

    Makes sense. I know I sure as hell wouldn't want to be awake/alert if I were in his shoes. Not for awhile anyway.


    Man... it just makes you think of how lucky we are (those of us that played the game) that this didn't happen to any of us (and to those that it did happen to, I truly feel for you).


    Especially guys that played high impact positions. I was a FB most of my playing days and I had a tendency to lead with my head (although not the top of my head, more like the front - see what you hit) and any one of those hits could of did the same to me.

    Actually it doesn't even look like Everett lead that much with the top of his head. A little, but not blatant. Just incredibly unfortunate.
