Godspeed, Kevin Everett

My wife just messaged me this story and reminded me to keep praying for Kevin Everett, the Buffalo Bills back-up tight end who broke his neck making a routine tackle Sunday.

Injured Bills tight end Kevin Everett has voluntary movement of his arms and legs, according to a report from Buffalo TV station WIVB-TV. WIVB medical reporter Dr. Peter Ostrow says the voluntary movement shows dramatic improvement over the prognosis Everett was given Monday, when orthopedic surgeon Dr. Andrew Cappuccino called Everett’s spinal-cord injury suffered in Sunday’s game against the Denver Broncos “catastrophic” and life-threatening.

At the time, Cappuccino said Everett’s chances of regaining a full range of body motion were not very likely.

But according to WIVB-TV, Cappuccino is much more optimistic Tuesday evening.

“We may be witnessing a minor miracle,” Cappuccino said, according to the report.

My wife and I were watching the game when Everett went limp and collapsed on the field, and I can’t recall the last time either of us were so shaken by the plight of a stranger. I make the same request my wife did of me: Keep praying.
