Severely injured Buffalo Bills player Kevin Everett can now move all his limbs, giving hope to his relieved surgeon that he may walk again. The good news comes a day after his doctor said he would likely remain paralyzed and could even lose his life in the wake of a "catastrophic" spinal injury Everett suffered during a tackle.
Everett's latest MRI shows only slight swelling of his spinal cord, reports ESPN. His improvement is "totally spectacular, totally unexpected," said one doctor who has observed the case. He credits the immediate use of a saline drip to drop the player's temperature and reduce spinal swelling as a crucial factor in his improvement.
