Colt’s injury last night, which probably cost Texas the BCS championship, was hardly the first time.
Not even the first time for the shoulder he said after the game had no feeling. He’d hurt it before, in 2006, followed a few weeks later by a severe pinched nerve in his neck. Then, in 2007, he suffered a mild concussion.
Says here he will now prepare for the NFL draft. He probably shouldn’t. Not only is he likely to sustain a greater injury in that more difficult arena, what team would want to invest millions in a fragile player of questionable health? He wouldn’t otherwise suffer. The Texas alumni association will see that he is gainfully, prosperously, employed for life.
