Richard Collier Paralyzed After Shooting

Eddie RossellCorrespondent ISeptember 29, 2008

As some of you may know, the Jaguars backup offensive lineman Richard Collier was shot outside of an apartment building while sitting in a car with a former teammate.

The doctors working on him have said that Collier has 14 bullet wounds and was paralyzed from the waist down in the shooting.

He also had to have one of his legs amputated earlier today. The surgery was successful and Collier is listed as in stable condition.

So far nobody has been arrested in the shooting.
