Johnny Knox downgraded from season ending injury to career ending injury

Johnny Knox won't play football again: 'I'm moving on'
192

By Gregg Rosenthal
Around The League Editor

Updated: Feb. 14, 2013 at 03:17 p.m.

Johnny Knox's life changed dramatically when he took a devastating hit in December 2011. Fourteen months later, Knox realizes that his NFL career is over.

With the offseason officially under way, Around the League will examine what's next for all 32 teams.

AFC East
Bills | Dolphins | Jets | Patriots
AFC North
Bengals | Browns | Ravens | Steelers
AFC South
Colts | Jaguars | Texans | Titans
AFC West
Broncos | Chargers | Chiefs | Raiders

"As an athlete, you don't want to give up, you want to keep on fighting. That's how I've always been," Knox told Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times. "But it's been on my heart for a while. I know how my body feels, and I know I'm not going to be the same and perform at the ability that I used to.

"So I'm moving on and going forward."

The news does not come as a huge surprise just one day after the Bears terminated Knox's contract. But Knox's agent previously indicated that Knox would try to play again.

It's a sad story for such a young, promising player. Just a few days after the birth of his second child, Knox suffered a horrific back injury while playing the Seattle Seahawks. He had spinal fusion surgery the next day and missed all of the 2012 season.

Knox has pushed himself in rehabilitation, but he walks with a limp and can't stand comfortably. The only time he's not in pain is when lying down. But he's grateful to have a relatively normal life.

"I was centimeters away from being paralyzed, so just sitting here and talking, I'm appreciative of that," Knox says. "Just the hard work that I had to put in. Just to be able to stay in and do everything in my daily life that I used to do."

Knox's short career will be remembered for a Pro Bowl appearance as a rookie return man. He was also the leading receiver on the 2010 Bears team that reached the NFC title game.

His career ended suddenly, but Knox does not sound like a man that feels wronged.

"My whole life, I've always been positive, and people ask me, 'Man, why are you so positive?'

"But I know things will work out for the best."

I remember seeing that and thinking, "That dude's gotta be paralyzed." One of the scariest injuries I've ever seen.

I wish him the best. He was pretty decent. For a while, he carried the Bears offense.

he was part of the greatest special teams trick play I ever saw...

Hester went back like he was going to catch the punt on the right side of the field...only the punter punted it to the left side of the field...the only guy over there was Johnny Knox...

every other player blocked for Hester and all of the opposition went to tackle Hester while Knox and then a lead blocker caught the ball on the opposite side of the field and ran for an untouched TD...

too bad the officials called some irrelevant, ticky tack holding penalty that was nowhere close to the play so it got called back...

pretty sure the guy calling that play was our new special teams coach Toub (or whatever his name is)
