Update on Kevin Everett

By Jay Skurski

Is Kevin Everett fortunate?

That's the question posed to him by Dave Hyde of the Fort Lauderdale Sun Sentinel, who interviewed the former Buffalo Bills tight end recently.

"Am I fortunate?" Everett asks Hyde. "You tell me. Am I?"

It's an eye-opening and sometimes sad update on Everett, who was paralyzed Sept. 9, 2007 in a head-on collision with the Denver Broncos' Domenik Hixon in a game at Ralph Wilson Stadium.

Everett lives outside Houston with his pregnant wife, Wiande, and their two daughters, Famatta, 3, and Faith, 2.

In the article, Everett talks about how he views football now, and how he deals with the daily struggle of the injuries he sustained that day.
