ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) _ Buffalo Bills reserve tight end Kevin
Everett remains in an intensive care unit and will spend one to two
days under sedation as doctors evaluate the extent of a severe
spinal injury that could leave him paralyzed. That's what a partner
of the player's agent tells The Associated Press.
Everett sustained what the team called a cervical spine injury
when he ducked his head while driving in to tackle Denver's Domenik
Hixon during the second half-opening kickoff.
He was taken off the field by ambulance about 15 minutes later
and transported to a local hospital where he underwent surgery.
The Bills team doctor is expected to provide a medical update
later this afternoon.
