Peyton Hillis
Default Johnny Knox Injury

I can't believe there hasn't been any talk about this since Sunday. I first watched the video and had a hard time with it. All 3 of my boys play football, and you just can't help but feel terrible for an unfortunate injury.

The video is hard to watch, but I just can't believe the guy is still alive. Anyway, it sound like he is recovering from back surgery, but here is the video of the Johnny Knox injury vs. Seattle last Sunday.

If you have a weak stomach, just don't watch.

I saw that live. I'm glad he's alright. I was really hoping he would just survive the hit, and hopefully not be paralyzed.

After seeing that, I believe all football players should have all their medical expenses covered by the league for the rest of their lives. No exceptions.

Watch enough sports and you start to get pretty unfazed by seeing legs snapped, feet folding the wrong way, etc. That one, though, makes you light headed to just think about afterward. Amazing he'll probably be back out on the field week 1 next year.

I'm surprised he isn't paralyzed after that

God speed in his recovery

I saw the injury live, but the first thing on my mind was "That was helmet-to-helmet". I guess I've been conditioned to watch for those things, now...

Do you realize how many people you're talking about here? That alone would probably bankrupt every single owner.

And how would you enforce it for new owners buying a team? They'd all of a sudden inherit thousands of people's healthcare expenses who no longer play for the team, and haven't for maybe decades?

And what about players that get traded? Who picks them up after retirement?

Or Eddie Mac flying through the air upside down with his leg flappin in the breeze. That was nasty, September 10th, 2001. Hard to forget that game.

This needs to be renamed to the horrendous injury thread.

Theisman was the lead contender until Knox came along.

Seeing it live during the game at first glance, I thought he got spun around and bent forward. Its like my mind was thinking a person just cant bend in two backwards in a football tackle like that. Thats just ugly, unfortunate, and wishing the best for Johnny Knox.

Wow, I had heard about it and read the updates saying his career is not in Jeopardy at this point witch a chance to return in 2012. But I just saw this and man that is scary.

Yes, one I believe. He underwent surgery Monday to stabilize it. Should recover fully in 3-4 months.

I think they said on AM1000 in Chicago that they had to fuse the fractured vert, as long as none of his nerves were damaged he should be OK, he will never be what he was before the accident but he should be OK.

Well they think he will be playing in 2012 so he is much better than most.

That vertebrae fusion is the same thing they did with Payton Manning just different situations led to it. He is very lucky.
