Pretty cool profile on the Buffalo Bills tight end who was temporarily paralyzed duing a game earlier this season on SI.com. Apparently he's walking now and is slowly regaining much of his previous strength. The ortho-spine doc who initially managed his care at the game instituted hypothermic therapy to keep his core temperature at 91 degrees. This is still a bit controversial; the level I evidence in a trauma setting simply isn't there to recommend it as a standard of care but certainly things have worked out remarkably for this young man.
