EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Twenty-eight years have passed since Colorado tight end Ed Reinhardt Jr. collapsed from a seemingly routine hit that would change his life forever.
Reinhardt was the nation's leading receiver on Sept. 15, 1984, when the Buffaloes visited the Ducks. With about two minutes left and Colorado trailing 27-20, he was tackled.
After losing consciousness on the sidelines, Reinhart was taken to a local hospital where doctors discovered he had a blot clot in his brain. Reinhardt underwent emergency surgery and spent some three months in a coma.
Reinhardt's family was never given much hope for his recovery. Now 47, Reinhardt will be at Autzen Stadium this Saturday when No. 2 Oregon hosts Colorado.
