    That sucks for him. Made a roster cut easy for the FO though.

    I just hope it’s just a sprain. As a quadriplegic myself, trust me, paralysis is the worst malady one can ever go through.

    Reporters.

    Maybe he couldn’t. Maybe he just didn’t want to. Maybe Florio you should’t repeat mindless uncaring crap. The guy was injured and probably scared crapless.
