Default Prayers for Bills' Kevin Everett

The Bills TE Keven Everett went down unconscious on the field today.

Latest word coming from the Bills Message Board indicates that he suffered a cervical spine injury, and never regained consciousness on the field. The word on the message board (take it for what its worth) is that he is undergoing emergency surgery, and that word around the hospital is indicating he's paralyzed.

Like I said earlier, put him in your prayers.

Always terrible to hear of this sort of injury, he will be remembered in prayer.

KEVIN EVERETT IN EMERGENCY SURGERY

Peter King of NBC reports that Bills tight end Kevin Everett currently is in emergency surgery to repair a cervical spinal injury suffered during Sunday's game against the Broncos.

Everett's injury is the most serious of a rash of injuries suffered by the Bills on Sunday. Cornerback Jason Webster fractured an arm. Linebacker Coy Wire injured an MCL. Safety Ko Simpson broke an ankle.

It's a horrendous start for the Bills, but all of those injuries are eclipsed by the serious situation involving Everett. We'll kee you posted as to the reports.

I read where he attended Port Aurthur Jefferson .

Here's more information on Kevin Everett

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/200....ap/index.html

Quote:

Bills spokesman Scott Berchtold said he was informed by the team's medical staff the player went into surgery at about 8 p.m. Berchtold said he had no further information, and didn't know whether Everett had shown any signs of movement since he was driven off the field in an ambulance.

--------------------

Bills general manager Marv Levy said doctors informed the team that it's too early to determine the severity of the injury and they will know more after monitoring the player overnight.

"Certainly, we feel the injury is serious, but I don't want to speculate, and that's what the doctors told us," Levy told The Associated Press. "They told us to wait to hear from them before making any speculative announcement."

--------------------

Everett fell to the ground and never moved after a helmet-to-helmet hit when he tackled Denver's Domenik Hixon during a kickoff to open the second half. Everett was placed on a backboard with his head and body immobilized, and carefully loaded into an ambulance at the Broncos 30.

The game was delayed for about 15 minutes, and the Bills gathered at the sideline while doctors attended to the player.
My thoughts and prayers go out to Kevin Everett.

I've heard radio reports this morning that he is in stable conditions and he has regained a small amount of movement.

Let's hope so.

How often do they operate so quickly with these type of injuries? I always thought they tried to stabilize patients until the swelling at the point of injury goes down.

From what I've been reading, they had to remove bone chips from the 3rd and 4th vertibrae that driven into his spinal cord. The faster that they can do it lessens the amount of damage.

I'm not a doctor, but I've always heard that anything about the 5th vertebrae effects the breathing.

It's about as serious as it can get.

I love football. I love to play it with friends, I love to watch it on Saturdays. But hearing about this has taken a little of that love out of me. It's hard to explain, but I guess seeing a guy potentially be paralyzed for life makes me dislike the sport in a way. I still love the game, but I guess there's a little emptiness there at the moment.

Its easy to get discouraged from an injury like this, but honestly, when was the last time you heard of a pro football player have an injury this serious?

Its not as common as it seems. Now look at other sports. Car Racing, basketball, baseball, etc They lal have their share of injuries. And now look at other jobs. Construction, fisherman, policeman, etc they all have their share too.

The simple fact is that living life is dangerous. Some things increase that risk of injury, but you can't live life in fear of ever getting hurt or youll end up missing it altogether

It is scary to think an injury like this occurred so easily but as resilient as the human body is,sometimes people are just unlucky & something like this happens.

Uh, buddy, in case you haven't thought this through - Mr. Everett is quite literally fighting for his life. This goes way beyond being sad, but not because he'll never play a game again. No, this is sad because he may not ever get to do those things again that ordinary folks take for granted like pick up his kids (if he has any), take a walk around the neighborhood, or even feed himself. This is indeed sad, but it has nothing to do with the game.

And this last part may belong in the devotionals, but I'm writing it anyway:

Father God, we pray that You will be with Kevin Everett in this darkest of hours. We pray that You will have Your hands upon him as he begins this long road to recovery and that You will be a comfort to his family as they wait for Kevin to regain consciousness. Father, strengthen them all for what could be a long and arduous recovery for Kevin. Give them the resolve that they will need for him when he comes to. We pray that You will annoint the doctors and hospital staff that are working with him. Give them healing hands so that they can help Kevin in any way that You would call them to. Above all else, Father, we pray supernatural healing over Kevin Everett so that he would not have to be confined to a bed or a wheelchair. We claim healing for him, Father, in Jesus' holy name.

Thy will be done....
