Kevin Everett doctors: Could be walking within weeks

Doctors upgrade the prognosis, the injured Buffalo Bills tight end Kevin Everett could be walking within weeks.

Kevin Everett doctors: Could be walking within weeks After a grim initial prognosis, the doctors now believe that Kevin Everett could be walking within weeks and is expected to stand up on his own within the next few days. Everett received a potentially life threatening spinal-cord injury during the season-opener game between the Buffalo Bills and the Denver Broncos on September 9th. A routine tackle against the Broncos' Domenik Hixon left Kevin Everett lying on the field and had to be hurried to the hospital. A day after the incident the orthopedic surgeon gave a bleak prognosis for the future of the Buffalo Bills tight end, saying that full recovery would be highly unlikely and that permanent paralysis was the possible outcome of the sustained injury.

 Earlier today, Kevin Everett was flown to Huston to start the long months of rehabilitation at home. He is being transferred from Buffalo's Millard Fillmore Gates Hospital to Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston, as suggested by Dr. Barth Green, chairman of the neurological surgery department at the University of Miami school of medicine, who has been in close contact with Everett's doctors. According to Dr. Green, having his family close would significantly improve Everett's outlook.
