Interview by Dan Le Batard with Jason Taylor and some of the poo he went through just to play on Sundays and some of the injuries he had, including nearly having to have his leg amputated.

My personal opinion on this is that the NFL needs to continue to do more to protect players especially in the field of equipment technology, but I also think that this is the choice you make, and the sacrifice you make when you decide to play football professionally.

The trainer rushed to Taylor’s house. Taylor thought he was overreacting. The trainer told him they were immediately going to the hospital. A test kit came out. Taylor’s blood pressure was so high that the doctors thought the test kit was faulty. Another test. Same crazy numbers. Doctors demanded immediate surgery. Taylor said absolutely not, that he wanted to call his wife and his agent and the famed Dr. James Andrews for a second opinion. Andrews also recommended surgery, and fast. Taylor said, fine, he’d fly out in owner Daniel Snyder’s private jet in the morning. Andrews said that was fine but that he’d have to cut off Taylor’s leg upon arrival. Taylor thought he was joking. Andrews wasn’t. Compartment syndrome. Muscle bleeds into the cavity, causing nerve damage. Two more hours, and Taylor would have had one fewer leg. Fans later sent him supportive notes about their own compartment syndrome, many of them in wheelchairs.

He developed a staph infection that required that catheter to run from armpit to heart with antibiotics. He’d hook himself up to it for a half-hour a day, like a car getting gas, letting the balls of medicine roll into his body. Then he concealed the catheter in tape under his arm so that an opponent wouldn’t know he was weak. Opponents will find your weakness, At the bottom of a fumble pile, a Buffalo Bills player once squeezed the hell out of Taylor’s Adam’s Apple to try and dislodge the football. Anything you read about the PICC line catheter (peripherally inserted central catheter) Taylor used will tell you to avoid swimming or weightlifting or anything that might get it dirty or sweaty. Taylor was playing with it in for weeks while colliding in the most violent of contact sports. Doctors told him it wasn’t a good idea to play with it in. He ignored them.

A one legged Jason Taylor would have still been a better option at Kicker than Olindo Mare

No, He ended up with so much nerve damage after a game that if he didn't get to the hospital and had emergency surgery he would have had his leg amputated.

Sounds like the perfect concept for a new Quentin Tarantino film.

wow. really good read. actually gives me more respect for the added rules. these guys don't know where to draw the line...they are blinded by the job. the rules don't just help protect the league from lawsuits, it helps protect the players from themselves.

should they need to be protected from themselves? doesn't really matter because they do need it.

Would have rushed the passer better than Everett Brown as well.

I am not sure if it is an inferiority complex or bad self deprecating humor. Either way it is predictable and sad.

So you are saying a one legged Jason Taylor is not better than Everrette Brown? I'd have to disagree.
