Ron Springs

I heard some sad news on the radio as I was driving into the office this morning.

Ron Springs the former Dallas Cowboys running back and the father of Redskins cornerback Shawn Springs is in the hopsital after his body rejected the kidney he was given in a transplant.

Ron was in need of a kidney for sometime and his son decided that he would give up his own NFL career so that he could donate a kidney to his father. Ron didn't want that to happen and asked Shawn not to. Later, Ron's teammate, former Cowboys cornerback Lenny Walls (the guy in the endzone for Dwight Clark's famous catch) found out he was a match and donated the kidney to Ron Springs.

This morning it was reported that Ron Springs is alive but has no brain activity. My thoughts and prayers are with the Springs family through this difficult time.
