Johnny Knox was cut earlier this week by the Chicago Bears. The wide receiver/return specialist vowed to return to the game, but after a few days of contemplation he appears to have changed his mind.
At the tender age of 26 he is retiring from football.
Knox has not played since taking the above hit in a game against Seattle back in December 2011. More than 13 months later he is still having difficulty walking? Yeah, it's time to call it a day.
“As an athlete, you don’t want to give up, you want to keep on fighting. That’s how I’ve always been,” Knox said. “But it’s been on my heart for a while. I know how my body feels...So I’m moving on and going forward.” (SunTimes)
Best of luck to you Johnny.
