Reggie williams may havve amputation

7 posts in this topic

Saw this about Reggie Williams, former LB for the  Bengals. After 24 surgeries, his knee is so mangled and disfigured his DR.s say he will eventually lose his leg.  Insurance doesn't cover his preexisting condition but he has done well after football as a VP of Disney.  This screams to the fact that there needs to be some level of disability benefits for retired players.

 

Here's the link (the pic of his knee is pretty graphic):

SAD, at least the owner of the Bengals should help pay for his treatment if not the 10 Billion a year NFL....  These guys need to be taken care of....

 

If I was a current player on the Bengals, I wouldnt want to play for that team anymore, I would hit the road as soon as my contract is up.

I saw that picture it looks like he tried to stop a car with his knee.

Maybe his college should pay. Or his high school. The problem is there are so many football players out there. You can't pay for all of them.

    • I like the use of props like in that old MTV allstar game where there was like 2 additional baskets above the main hoop. Could be interesting.

    • It seems like every year around draft time, huddle math kicks into full effect.  Somehow by puck 8 the top 20 prospects will magically be gone. Always amazes me.  Unless you are trading up to 1 draft a Peppers or Cam franchise can't miss prospect I don't see why this team would trade up with a pick in the top 10.  Use last years slump to your advantage and build your core.  Get 2-3 starting caliber (not necessary starters on this team but starting caliber) NFL players and some depth guys.  I like Fournette but there are other guys that can fill a role on this team who will be available.  No need to throw the draft away. Just my opinion. 
    • Oh hell, make it 28 points. Boy, the failcons could have used that.
