Best Answer

Reggie Brown.

Brown suffered a spinal cord contusion against the New York Jets on December 21, 1997. He was unconscious on the ground for 15 minutes and stopped breathing until a ventilating device was placed down his throat. He had immediate surgery and that, along with intense physical therapy, helped him to be able to walk again. Two months later, at the ESPY Awards, he walked onstage and accepted the award for Best Pro Football Player on behalf of Barry Sanders.
