The New York Times' George Vecsey updates us on Reggie Williams, who is now driving his car all over the place with his rebuild leg.
In July, the leg began to heal. On Aug. 19, he received a second artificial knee. On Sept. 5, he had another procedure to clean the implant. Then he began reintroducing his linebacker body to the complexity of motion. He thanks Dr. Stephen J. O’Brien and all the other medical stars at the Hospital for Special Surgery.
He drove (his wife) into the city as she grilled him on the pitfalls of driving with a rebuilt leg. He promised he would go two hours, then rest for two hours, but as soon as he dropped her off, he began packing his car. The next morning he headed down the turnpike, with no more than 60 degrees of motion in his right knee, not ideal for driving.
After two hours, he stopped for coffee and decided there was no turning back. After stopping to visit his brother in Atlanta, he got home to Orlando in time for his son’s football banquet.
