People, this is a sad state of affairs:
Jacksonville Jaguars offensive tackle Richard Collier, shot while sitting in a car outside an apartment complex earlier this month, is paralyzed below the waist and his left leg was amputated, his doctor said Monday. Collier was on a ventilator for about three weeks and has no memory of the shooting, said Dr. Andy Kerwin, a surgeon for the University of Florida at Shands Jacksonville hospital. “His overall condition has improved greatly,” Kerwin said. “We expect him to be discharged soon.”
While it is a good thing that Richard didn’t die due to this act of violence, this young man and his family could definitely use our collective prayers to get over this ordeal. Although we do make light of pretty much everything on this site, this is a serious situation and we sincerely wish Mr. Collier and his family, the very best as they commence the most challenging journey of their lives. The team here at Bossip, and all of our readers are right behind you!!!
