As we always know, playing football is sometimes dangerous. It caused injuries. Having a concussion may not so serious as it may not affect your life until long later, but injuring neck is something that may take one’s life shortly. Knowing that now, let’s pray for the Green Bay Packers linebacker Jeremy Thompson, who is now in hospital for suffering a neck injury during practice.
According to Packers Coach Mike McCarthy, Thompson got injured on neck near the end of Friday’s practice and remained conscious after the neck stinger. His words perhaps are worthy trust as the coach stayed with Thompson while the linebacker was being loaded into an ambulance.
Thompson is in his second year of wearing pro NFL jersey since being picked by the Packers in the fourth round of 2008. He has spent most time in Green Bay’s special team and missed the team’s first two preseason games with a stinger to a shoulder.
