Default Rahim Moore comes to bedside of man suffering compartment syndrome, 33 minutes after being asked

An email arrived from a relative of the patient. A phone call came later this morning. It took me by surprise. Covering professional sports for 20 years, I have never heard of such a spontaneous act of kindness and caring from an athlete.

Good guys remain in sports. Broncos safety Rahim Moore belongs on the top of that list after what transpired Thursday.

Last Sunday, a Denver man in his 30s — I am withholding his name at the family’s request — ran a 10K in Steamboat Springs and began suffering searing leg pain. Monday, he needed surgery, followed by another operation, and the loss of a major league muscle. He was diagnosed with compartment syndrome. By Thursday night, hope became a stranger, and the family was reeling.

Research led them to Moore, who nearly lost his left leg last season following a similar diagnosis. With help from a 9News staff member, the family emailed the Broncos at 9:40 p.m. Media relations director Patrick Smyth answered and sent a text to Moore at 9:42. Moore told Smyth he wanted to meet them immediately. At 10:15 p.m., Moore sat bedside at a metro-area hospital with the man and his family. He provided information on recovery, encouraged him and formed a prayer circle with the group.

Those in attendance were staggered by Moore’s compassion — and desire to help. Moore was not immediately available for comment on Friday. No surprise. He was helping kids at a Denver-area football clinic.

That's really cool. Rahim has caught some flack over the years but at the end of the day we're all just people and it's really neat to see that side of him.

I agree with everything there except the prayer circle. Why bring voodoo in on this?

I have always liked Moore and I always stood up for him even before his lapsed coverage in 2012. My only complaint of him is that he does not create plays to help the team win. He is a good solid player now we need him to step his game up and make more ints. and forced fumbles. He could be a very good safety he has all the tools but does he have the intangiTOOLS



intangiTOOLS.... I need to copyright that

Man you can get this just by doing everyday activities. Bench press and you can lose an arm. Run down the street there goes your leg. I've never seen or heard about this stuff growing up.

Hard not to like the kid as a person for sure. I really believe he's a key to this team this season.

Rahim has always come off as a committed, hardworking, and overall nice guy. Hope he continues to improve as a player this year.

Rooting like hell for Rahim. He's a heck of a football player and I want him to be part of something special with this team.

Dude, not the place. You and I may not agree, but if they want to do it, how does it affect you? Don't be a dick and don't be a liberal cliche.
