    Wow that is bad, not that this relates directly but I am more and more anti-1st round RB than ever, I hope we never select one in the future again, no matter how amazing one seems.

    Tough break. The kid has some serious talent. Hard to not feel sorry for him.

    If true that's very sad. Plenty of people were proclaiming him the next CJ2K during the offseason.

    Imagine being a 21 year old with people discussing you're about to become the next CJ2K, you start fantasizing about that 60M contract you'll sign in 8 months and then you get an injury that not only takes that away but any ability to perform useful physical labor. He'll be lucky to become a HS security guard making 50K in his hometown in 5 years when his fame fades.

    Isn't that what ended Michael Irvin's career?

    Fortunately he is young, and the world is ahead of him. future and past are manifested in your present.

    That's not good. Who's going to cough up the ball to us, then, when we really need it?

    That's a very tough deal. I hate to see anyone get injuried in any way but especially ones that end their career, potentially.

    Yeah, jokes aside, it really stinks for the player.

    I think the article may be jumping a little with the career ending talk. I am certain there are plenty more people than Irvin and Samuels who have had spinal stenosis at some point. Peyton Manning most likely had it as well. Anyone who has issues with bulging or herniated discs has a good chance of having spinal stenosis. While it's possible it could be career threatening depending on the cause, it's also possible it could be remedied after some physical therapy and anti-inflammatory medication. Need more info.

    From article
    For those who might not remember that far back or are a newer fan to the game, former Dallas Cowboys star wide receiver Michael Irvin suffered cervical spinal stenosis playing against the Eagles in Week 5 of the 1999 season after having his head driven into the turf of the old Veterans Stadium; a play that would end his NFL and Hall of Fame career due to the severity of it.

    Somewhere in California, but good luck paying your rent and eating :cool:

    You could always learn some surfer lingo and live on the beach. I would recommend a few sweaters, it can get cold in the middle of summer.

    He can still play, yes it sucks but when managed the right way he could still play for at least 5-6 years and still be able to walk when he retires. I develop it after breaking my back in the Military when I was 24 and I have just started to slow down (I will be 40 this month), no I am not a football player getting hit all the time, but riding and crashing dirt bikes and all of the other stupid things I did that led to hard impact crashes says he should be good. I am not a doctor but I did sleep well last night!
