ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -The Buffalo Bills' Kevin Everett sustained a ``catastrophic'' and life-threatening spinal-cord injury and his chances of regaining a full range of body motion are very small, an orthopedic surgeon said Monday.
``A best-case scenario is full recovery, but not likely,'' Dr. Andrew Cappuccino said, one day after performing a four-hour operation on the player. ``I believe there will be some permanent neurological paralysis. ... A full neurological recovery was bleak, dismal.''
Cappuccino noted the 25-year-old reserve tight end did have touch sensation throughout his body and also showed signs of movement.
