ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -The Bills are making plans for tight end Kevin Everett to attend the team's home finale Sunday, which would be his first trip back to Buffalo since sustaining a serious spinal cord injury.
``We're working on it, but we're not positive,'' Bills general manager Marv Levy told The Associated Press late Wednesday. Levy said the invitation was extended by Russ Brandon, the team's executive vice president of business operations.
Brandon did not immediately return a message.
Attending the game against the New York Giants would mark the latest step in Everett's remarkable recovery. The player was initially paralyzed from the neck down while attempting to tackle Domenik Hixon during a kickoff return in the Bills season opener against Denver on Sept. 9.
Hixon, who now plays for the Giants, was told Wednesday that Everett is supposed to attend the game, Hixon's agent, Eric Metz said.
``Nothing formal has been set yet, but I'm sure they'll meet up,'' Metz said.
Everett had informed his Bills teammates last month that he hoped to attend the game against the Giants.
Eric Armstead, an associate of Everett's agent, Brian Overstreet, declined comment.
Released last month from a Houston facility, Everett is walking on his own and continues to attend daily rehab sessions as an outpatient.
Bills coach Dick Jauron said he didn't know whether Everett would attend the game.
``It would be an unbelievable thing,'' he said. ``To have him back in the facility and to see him walk and then, hopefully, if he does come back, address his teammates, would be great.''
Everett's already making other public appearance plans. He's scheduled to be the guest speaker at Port Arthur Memorial High School's football banquet on Jan. 10, said Kenny Harrison, the school's offensive coordinator who coached Everett in high school.
