Watching the replay of TJ Ford's injury last night literally made my stomach turn. Not only because of the violent nature of the Al Horford foul, but because of TJ's history with neck injuries. Ford was taken off on a stretcher and was visibly hurting from the flagrant foul. Was it a dirty play? It sure looks to me like it is, but judge for yourself:
But good news from today, TJ has been released from the hospital and has actually been cleared to play. Amazing considering how bad the injury looked. TJ literally put Texas basketball on the map with his commitment to the Longhorns. He also became the first Longhorn basketball player to win the National Player of the Year Award.
