Default Texans' Green coping with stepdad's death, injury

Story by ESPN, link:

Quote:
HOUSTON -- Just as Ahman Green's injured left knee was getting better, Houston's running back was dealt another far more personal setback with news of his stepfather's death.

Edward Scott died of complications from liver cancer Tuesday night in a Houston hospital. The 70-year-old Scott helped raise Green after marrying his mother when he was 6.

"It's tough to handle," Green said. "He was my stepdad, so he raised somebody else's seed. I'm proud of the fact that he took that responsibility and did an awesome job with taking care of me and taking care of my mom growing up."

Green said Scott had prepared him and his family, but it was difficult to watch his stepfather's illness progress while he battled the disease the last five years.

"I feel like a stress is lifted off my back because I didn't want to see him suffer no more," Green said. "To see somebody you love like that go through pain every day, you almost think, 'let's get this over with' because it's almost -- it's torture to see him go through that."

Green, who missed Sunday's game with a bruised knee, returned to practice on Wednesday for the first time in more than a week. Coach Gary Kubiak said he was "encouraged" by Green's return, but that it would be premature to say that he expects him to play this week. He was limited in practice.
Best wishes Ahman. Your family is in our prayers. Take care of the family, after all this is just a game.

Rest in peace Mr. Scott.
Ahman you are a great RB & an even better person thanks for choosing to play for the texans. We are truly blessed to have a man of your character representing the texans. Mr. Scott you did a fine job of raising such a good man.

A super duper nice guy he was. I met him when I interviewed Kris Brown. He had a few words with Kris Brown and his wife right before our interview and Kris introduced us midway through their conversation. Ahman knelt down and shook my five year old's hand. All I could do was stand there with my jaw open. He had this great smile. A decent human being.

I wish him the best of luck.
