Man, after the story with Everson I was hoping he would get better


DALLAS -- Former Dallas Cowboys running back Ron Springs is hospitalized in a coma, more than seven months after receiving a kidney donated by ex-teammate Everson Walls.

The Washington Redskins said Tuesday that cornerback Shawn Springs, son of the 50-year-old Springs, has flown to Dallas to be with his father.

It wasn't immediately clear what caused Ron Springs, who suffered from diabetes, to lapse into a coma or when he was hospitalized. Calls to the family weren't returned.

Dallas-Fort Worth television station KTVT first reported Springs' condition.

I heard earlier tonight that doctors said that there isn't any hope for recovery, no brain activity has been detected and he has been on a respirator since surgery to have a cyst removed from his elbow. Very sad news.

That is so sad.

That really stinks! He was beginning to look well too.
