Neck injury will end the career of Seahawks fullback Strong

NFL.com

KIRKLAND, Wash. -- Seattle Seahawks fullback Mack Strong has a spinal cord condition that is ending his career immediately -- but not affecting his quality of life.

And for that, the 36-year-old Pro Bowler, husband and father of two is grateful.

"I've played a long time, 15 years. I felt like I was pretty lucky, pretty blessed," a teary-eyed Strong said Monday after learning that a herniated disk in his neck is pinching his spinal cord -- and ending an unheralded, improbable career that began as an undrafted free agent out of Georgia in 1993.

thats a real shame, one of the most hardworking players in the game doesn't deserve his career to end like that.

He deserves to be in the Hawks ring of honour without a doubt.
