    No he shouldn't be. A medical issue isn't a crime.

    Yep, a good article about Jones and spinal stenosis here: http://www.austinchronicle.com/blogs...inal-stenosis/

    According to Dr. Hecht, players with spinal stenosis are at increased risk of stingers. However, they are also at risk for a more serious condition called cervical cord neuropraxia. Dr. Hecht had much to say about cervical cord neuropraxia, but the main distinguishing difference in this condition and a stinger is the presence of these symptoms in multiple limbs; both arms, both legs, or an arm and a leg.
    With all this said, Dr. Hecht was extremely clear about one thing. "Congenital spinal stenosis is not a contraindication of playing football."
    In fact, research shows that players with spinal stenosis are at no greater risk of devastating spinal cord injury than any other player with a normal-sized spinal canal. This flies in the face of what one could logically expect, but it is indeed the case.
    Every player that steps onto the football field is equally likely of suffering spinal trauma that may result in devastating neurological damage, paralysis, and even possible death.
    The biggest risk?

    The condition is anything but comfortable, and we have seen that players with the ailment generally decide that football is simply not worth it at some point.
    Facts trump asinine and uneducated comments by Crash every time...

    No one even KNEW he had spinal stenosis until they did the tests for the disk, which was actually the problem. He went an entire college and pro career with the issue and he did not even know.

    And if he did? You think he plays as long as he did?

    The money these teams pay out now? They know everything.

    Which is exactly my point.

    This isn't going away. If anything that statement by a medical expert does all the talking for me.

    O a tackle following a reception, Irvin awkwardly slammed his head into the hard turf of Veterans Stadium and was temporarily paralyzed.

    Tests revealed that he sustained a herniated disc, but they also detected that Irvin was born with a narrow spinal cord.
    They "detected" the spinal stenosis when they found the herniated disk (the actual injury). Again, you are FOS.

    Only if you fail to read the entire article. He has not been having problems with it, so any assumption that he will get scared and quit is just that, an assumption. He can play as long as he wants without any more chance of a bad injury than the next guy.

    Correct. And had he known about that injury earlier IMO he doesn't play as long as he did.

    READ!

    You guys are also comparing a QB and a WR to a linebacker. Jones will deliver, and take, more blows in one game, than a QB or WR may take in three.
