Kevin Everett walks again.

Kevin Everett is walking on his own at a Houston rehab center, the latest significant progress by the Buffalo Bills tight end in his remarkable recovery from a serious spinal cord injury.

"He doesn't have a full natural stride but, yeah, he's walking," a person close to the family told The Associated Press on Friday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of Everett's status.

Kevin Everett (born February 5, 1982 in Port Arthur, Texas) is an American football tight end for the Buffalo Bills of the National Football League. He was drafted by the Bills in the third round of the 2005 NFL Draft. He played college football at the University of Miami.

On September 9, 2007, Everett sustained a fracture and dislocation of his cervical spine that his doctors characterized as "life-threatening" the day after the injury, and stated it is likely to leave him with permanent neurological impairment. However, on September 11, 2007, Everett showed significant movement in his arms and legs, leading doctors to speculate that he may eventually be able to walk again. He is currently listed on injured reserve.
More prayer is needed, doubtless.

Fantastic stuff! He really has made a remarkable recovery.

American football really has so many horrific injuries. It can be quite sad.

I like a lot of players.
