Ron Springs Tribute

The Washington Post had an article today about former Dallas running back Ron Springs, who has been in a coma since Oct. 12, and his son Shawn Springs, who plays cornerback for the Redskins.

Springs, 51, is at Medical City Dallas Hospital, where he was supposed to have a cyst removed from his arm. He needed full anesthesia and never woke up from it. Springs has diabetes and had toes and a foot amputated because of it. He was traveling the country speaking about diabetes awareness before this happened.

Ron's playing was before my memory of Cowboy games. My memory begins with Tony Dorsett. But I've yet to send out the prayers for this man and his family.
