Injured Buffalo Bills tight end Kevin Everett is making such good progress that he could be transferred to a Houston hospital by this weekend to begin the next phase of his rehabilitation.
Everett sustained the life-threatening spinal-cord injury on September ninth while making a tackle. The player grew up in Port Arthur, Texas, and now lives in Houston, 90 miles away.
Everett is breathing on his own and able to move his limbs to some degree. There were fears immediately after the injury that Everett might not walk again but now there is more hope now for recovery.
