    That sucks! Hopefully it will be successful! Would love to see a Hokie TB actually playing in the NFL.

    A QB having neck surgery is one thing. They don't take the punishment an RB takes. I would say success in this situation would mean he can live a normal life - nothing normal about the life of an NFL RB. Are there other RBs who have been thru anything like this and played again?

    Didn't Suggs have neck issues as well in the league?

    Don't think it was his "kneck", thought it was his knee.

    No Lee was a neck. Similar injury to David. Good luck to David, prayers for him tonight.

    10-4. Is that what ended Lee's career?

    Man, it seems like VT RBs are cursed once they go to the NFL. Can't think of a Hokie RB that had a long career in the NFL.
    Tony Paige maybe. Kevin Jones had one 1,000 yd season but not much after that.
