Spinal Cord Injuries
Injuries of this nature usually cause more damage than what is detected at an emergency room screening. Spinal injuries from falling and being dragged may have long lasting effects and require extensive treatment. The seriousness of the spinal injury is something that should be taken seriously and should not be ignored.
It is not often that it is a good thing when someone one is let go from their job; but in the case of Kevin Everett being released might truly be a blessing. The Buffalo Bills released Kevin Everett on Tuesday, clearing the way for the former tight end to receive disability benefits for the spinal cord injury that ended his career.
