Best Answer

The worst injury would be a broken neck and has been suffered by several players including Darryl Stingley of the Patriots in 1978, Reggie Brown of the Lions in 1997, and Kevin Everett of the Bills in 2007. Brown regained full functions and is doing well. Everett has made a remarkable recovery and is walking again. Stingley spent the rest of his life as a quadriplegic.
