Post Report: Pacman's neck injury is career threatening

Quote:
Adam Schefter of NFL Network is reporting that the neck injury suffered by Cowboys cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones Sunday could end his career.

It was previously reported that the injury could end his season, but Schefter reports that it might even be worse than first thought.

Per Schefter, Jones’ body went numb for two minutes when he first suffered the injury. He has been having tests on his neck this week and is planning to meet with a neck specialist in North Carolina.

I'm no fan of Adam Jones, but I hate to hear about guys getting these serious injuries.

Exactly. I don't wish injuries like this on anyone even though Pacman is a POS.

I'll chime my agreement here. It sucks to hear. I'm not making fun when I say I hope he saved some of that money.

I do to (hate to hear about serious injuries) but we need to keep this in perspective. That giant case of the dumbass that he's walking around with is just as "career threatening" as any neck injury. If the guy can't play anymore he's earned a small mountain of money and if he has somehow managed to blow all that money in this short a period of time then he is certainly qualified for a job in either the food services or janitorial industries.

He'll be just fine.

Meh, it could've been avoided if Goodell stuck with his policy. Jones should've already been banned from the League.

If it is career ending I sincerely hope he treats it as a wake up call and rights his life.

I know how it sounds, but I think his career was already threatened. If he recovers, I don't see him having a long career.

yup... now he's not only a legal liability, he'll also be the focus of durability concerns.

Does the NFL not have some form of disability for it's players that get career ending injuries "in the line of duty" so to speak? Would only figure a unionized entity would have that.

Somewhere in Las Vegas there is a guy that is paralyzed directly because of "Pacman", just because he went to work to support his family.......I don't give a crap what happens to Mr. Jones. With other players...yeah it's sad, with "Pacman" I don't care.

To keep the anti-union perspective in line on this, keep in mind the NFL has an anti-trust exemption as well. Basically, there are two entities negotiating here.

The most they've ever given out is around $14,000 I think. They really don't care about players no longer in the game if there's no profit. The players have been fighting the league over it for years and some guys give up their paychecks to support retired players and their families who are disabled in some way.

Exclamation Re: Report: Pacman's neck injury is career threatening

What I really find strange about NFL players knowing career ending injuries not being provided adequate league compensation, is that even though it may cost more than for the average person, players could take from some of their millions (or even hundred of thousands) enough to pay for their own disability insurance.

Such disability policies are available to all NFL players. In fact, there are even disability policies that college draft prospects can individually purchase covering them up to the time of NFL contract.
