 ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -Bills tight end Kevin Everett arrived at Ralph Wilson Stadium on Sunday morning to watch Buffalo's home season finale, less than four months since sustaining a severe spinal cord injury on the same turf.
Bills spokesman Scott Berchtold said Everett met with teammates prior to their game against the Giants, and noted that Everett will watch the game from an undisclosed location. It's likely Everett will be a guest in team owner Ralph Wilson's suite at midfield.
Berchtold said Everett, who has spent the past 2 1/2 month rehabbing in Houston, where he makes his offseason home, would not be available for interviews.
Everett's attendance is the latest step in a remarkable recovery after doctors initially feared he'd never walk again. Everett was paralyzed from the neck down after he was hurt tackling Denver's Domenik Hixon in Buffalo's season opener Sept. 9.
Hixon, as it turns out, now plays for the Giants and hoped to meet with Everett at some point during the day.
Everett is now walking under his own power, and continues his rehab as an outpatient at Houston's Memorial Hermann/TIRR.
He had indicated to his teammates last month that he hoped to attend the game.
Everett was not expected to walk out on the field because of poor weather. Winds were already gusting at more than 30 mph and there was a persistent drizzle falling two hours before game time. Snow was also in the forecast.
The Bills (7-7) were eliminated from playoff contention following last weekend's 8-0 loss at Cleveland. The Giants (9-5) need a win to clinch a playoff berth.
