re Nicks recovery and playing again I don't see much hope that is going to happen. The mersa infection he has will never go away and every cut or scratch creates the risk of reinfection. This is a lifelong battle(personal experience) with something that never leaves your system or is cured and if he remains in the NFL as an active player the threat to his very life is real. Sad but true I don't think he will be on ours or any playing field in the future.
