    First I thought "Tigers don't drive!":confused:, then after reading it I wondered if he was being chased by an angry woman with a golf club again...:eek:

    Not a lot of detail in the story but it doesn't sound life threatening. Could be career threatening though. Bummer.

    Sounds like he'll likely need physical therapy. I hate PT. Sick of it.

    When they have to use the jaws of life to get you out it doesn’t sound too good ......

    You're right, it doesn't sound good - ever. Today's automobiles are manufactured to the highest safety standards ever though, and while the car can be totaled and require the JOL to extract an occupant the injuries don't have to be life threatening. Let's hope that's the case.

    My dad played with him when he was still at Stanford, just before he turned pro.

    Man that sucks. He's had a string of bad luck for a long long time. I was hoping that he would heal from back surgeries and get back to playing regularly. He may have to hang it up permanently. I hope he gets better.

    Watching the CBSN LA feed now. LA Sheriff just said that the info about jaws was not correct. Also, when you look at the vehicle, it's intact, they didn't cut the roof/pillars, it looks like they simply pulled him out the windshield.
