Everett Has "Some Movement" In Both Hands, According to Bills
Buffalo Bills tight end Kevin Everett has regained "some movement" in both his hands, according to the team's medical director.
"When examined Sunday evening, Kevin demonstrated increased strength in the muscles of his legs," John Marzo said in a written statement released by the Bills. "In addition, he was able to show some movement in both hands. Supportive care continues for vital body systems while Kevin begins to focus on his neurological and musculoskeletal rehabilitation."
Everett underwent emergency surgery after sustaining a life-threatening spinal cord injury while making a tackle on a kickoff during the Bills' opening game of the season. His doctors originally said there was little chance that he would ever walk again, but gave a slightly more optimistic prognosis after Everett had regained some movement in his legs by the middle of last week.
Everett remains in the intensive care unit of a Buffalo hospital.
