I hope Damar makes a complete recovery. This reminded me of Ryan Shazier who was actually paralyzed from a hit on the field and has made a recovery good enough to walk on stage at the NFL draft years ago and announce the Steelers pick.

Shazier told Colin Cowherd that if he could he would lace up and play for the Steelers tomorrow if he could. That's a dog mentality that I can appreciate.

From what I'm hearing the prognosis is very good. The only reason he was on the breathing tube was to give the lungs some time to recover from the on field intubation. Someone said that there's no reason barring something totally unforeseen that he couldn't return to just the way he was immediately before the impact.

Good article. It mentions it was only a matter of time until this happened to an NFL player. Personally, I think the chances of it happening have increased as the target on opposing players has been both lowered from the head and shoulders and raised from the lower body. More and more blows are taking place in the chest and midsection just based upon new rules.

It was Chuck Hughes’ fifth year in the NFL. The Eagles had drafted him in the fourth round out of Texas-El Paso in 1967, and he’d caught six passes for a total of 68 yards in three years in Philadelphia. Traded to the Lions in 1970, he’d caught eight balls his first year as a Lion. Most of his time was spent on special teams. He’d yet to catch a ball in the ’71 season.

That changed immediately. Lions quarterback Greg Landry found Hughes for 32 yards, setting up the Lions at the Chicago 37-yard-line. The crowd started to stir. Hughes was clobbered on the play — tackled by two Bears defenders, one high, one low — but rose quickly and jogged back to the huddle.

A couple of plays later, Landry tried to hit tight end Charlie Sanders in the end zone but the pass was broken up. Hughes, serving as a decoy, had broken his route short at the 15-yard line. As he headed back to the huddle, his eyes locked briefly with Dick Butkus, the Bears’ fearsome middle linebacker.

A second later, those eyes rolled back in Hughes’ head.

He collapsed to the turf, clutching his chest.

Hughes was removed from the field on a stretcher — an image captured, hauntingly, and printed in hundreds of newspapers the next day. He was hustled into an ambulance. His wife, Sharon, joined him there, saw his arms hanging limply, saw that he had turned a sickening shade of blue. Doctors at the hospital frantically tore off Hughes’ jersey and his shoulder pads.

At 5:41 p.m., Hughes was pronounced dead.
