Kevin Everett Update: Small Steps


By Chris

Some very good news out of Texas today: Kevin Everett is able to walk. Now it’s still a long road to recovery, but news like this–for lack of a better word–is awesome.

From WIVB’s report:

“News 4 has learned that Buffalo Bills tight end Kevin Everett is walking, with some assistance. The Bills tight end has been recovering at Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston since September 21st.

Doctors in Buffalo originally thought a spinal cord injury Everett suffered during the Bills home opener September 9th would leave him permanently paralyzed. But, medical experts now believe the Bills’ training staff may have saved Everett from more serious damage by quickly injecting him with an ice cold saline solution. A procedure developed by the Miami Project and Dr. Barth Green.

Doctors are very optimistic that once his rehab is done, Everett will be able to walk on his own.”

Kevin Everett remains in the thoughts and prayers of everyone here at the Roost. Get well soon, Kevin.
