‘Canes in the NFL
Good news for Everett

Former University of Miami, and current Buffalo Bills’, tight end Kevin Everett sustained a horrific injury last Sunday in the Bills’ season opener. Everett was injured while tackling the Denver Broncos’ Domenik Hixon. Everett ducked his head while making a tackle, and he immediately dropped to the ground after connecting with his head.

Orthopedic surgeon Andrew Cappuccino, who initially thought the injury suffered by Everett could be life-threatening or leave Everett unable to walk, is now optimistic that Everett will walk again.

This new outlook is a result of the fact that when Everett’s sedation levels were lowered on Tuesday, Everett was able to respond to verbal commands and had voluntary movement in his arms and legs.

Everett is still under sedation and breathing through a respirator, as doctors are waiting for swelling to lessen. Thus, Everett is still in the intensive care unit of Buffalo’s Millard Fillmore Gates Hospital.

FIU Game Saturday
UM Student Government aids ticket availability

When UM Student Government President Danny Carvajal heard that no tickets had been reserved for the FIU students, he contacted the Panthers’ Student Government.

According to Carvajal, the FIU students would reserve 2500 tickets only if they were given the price of $1.00 per ticket.
Carvajal plans to address President Donna E. Shalala and Miami Mayor Manny Diaz to request that the fee be waived and 2500 FIU students receive free tickets to Saturday’s game.
