    Buffalo Bills player receives a SCI in today's game against Denver

    The most serious injury was to special teamer Kevin Everett, who suffered a cervical spine injury on the second half kickoff. The reserve tight end was knocked out cold and laid motionless before being taken off the field in an ambulance.

    This didn't look good even before the replays were show. Now it is wait and see.

    Update as of 4:00 AM September 10, 2007

    Buffalo Bills tight end Kevin Everett had surgery last night, hours after he showed no signs of movement after suffering a severe neck injury.

    Bills spokesman Scott Berchtold said he was informed by the team's medical staff that Everett went into surgery at a Buffalo hospital. Berchtold said he didn't know whether Everett had shown any signs of movement since he was driven off the field in an ambulance.


    Coach Dick Jauron said immediately after the Bills' 15-14 loss to the visiting Denver Broncos that Everett sustained a cervical spine injury.

    Buffalo Bills tight end Kevin Everett suffered what could be a career-threatening injury during Sunday’s 15-14 loss to the Denver Broncos on Sunday in Ralph Wilson Stadium.

    Everett was admitted to Millard Fillmore Hospital with a cervical spine injury. Bills spokesman Scott Berchtold said Everett went into surgery about 8 p.m. Sunday, but he didn’t know whether Everett had shown any signs of movement since he was driven off the field in an ambulance.

    The Bills provided no other details, but a source with knowledge of the situation told The News that Everett’s surgeons removed bone chips from his third and fourth vertebrae.

    There was word at the hospital late Sunday that Everett, 25, was out of surgery and in the intensive care area. He was said to be on a respirator.

    A spokesman at the hospital declined to comment.

    “He’s had some sparse movement,” Everett’s agent Brian Overstreet told the Associated Press in a phone interview late Sunday.

    The next couple of days is going to be critical,” said Overstreet, responding to a question about paralysis. “Our concern is for him to come out of this healthy and, hopefully, be able to walk again.” Overstreet said Everett came out of a “lengthy surgery” Sunday evening and the plan was for his mother, Patricia Dugas, to arrive from Texas today.

    Word out of the Broncos’ locker room was that Everett was paralyzed.

    “We hear it’s not good,” Denver kicker Jason Elam said.

    Everett went down after a collision with Denver’s Domenik Hixon on the opening kickoff of the second half. Everett lowered his head into Hixon’s chest to tackle Hixon and appeared to be knocked unconscious on contact before falling to the turf.
    Yikes, this is so awful. I'm sure he was given MP. I wonder if an exception can be made to implant Dr. Borgens device.

    ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) - Former Thomas Jefferson standout
    Kevin Everett had surgery Sunday evening, hours after the Buffalo
    Bills reserve tight end showed no signs of movement after sustaining
    a severe neck injury in the team's season opener against Denver.
    Bills spokesman Scott Berchtold said he was informed by the
    team's medical staff the player went into surgery at a Buffalo
    hospital at about 8 p.m. Berchtold said he had no further
    information, and didn't know whether Everett had shown any signs of
    movement since he was driven off the field in an ambulance.
    General manager Marv Levy said doctors informed the team that
    it's too early to determine the severity of the injury and that
    they will know more after monitoring the player overnight.
    "Certainly, we feel the injury is serious, but I don't want to
    speculate, and that's what the doctors told us," Levy told The
    Associated Press. "They told us to wait to hear from them before
    making any speculative announcement."
    Coach Dick Jauron said immediately following the game that the
    player sustained a cervical spine injury, but wouldn't discuss the
    severity of the injury.

    Everett is from the Beaumont/Port Arthur area. TJ was in Port Arthur.
    My school was playing TJ when I was injuried.
