Sports briefs: USF's DeGeer reaps WCC honor

USF senior men’s soccer player Daniel DeGeer, who scored his first two career goals off of first-half free kicks and then assisted on the decisive goal in the second half of a 3-2 victory over San Jose State, was named West CoastConference Co-Player of the Week. DeGeer had just four points in his career before his five-point game against the Spartans.

Everett probably paralyzed

Buffalo Bills tight end Kevin Everett is unlikely to walk again after suffering a “catastrophic” and life-threatening spinal cord injury while trying to make a tackle in Sunday’s season opener against the Denver Broncos. “A best-case scenario is full recovery, but not likely,” said orthopedic surgeon Andrew Cappuccino, who operated on Everett. “I believe there will be some permanent neurologic deficit.” Cappuccino noted the 25-year-old reserve tight end did have touch sensation throughout his body and also showed signs of movement. But he cautioned that Everett’s injury was life-threatening because he was still susceptible to blood clots, infection and breathing failure. Cappuccino said it will take up to three days to determine the severity of the injury and the recovery process.
