07:58 AM ET 02.13 | On the day Johnny Knox's NFL world was turned upside down, former Bears receivers coach Darryl Drake said he just wanted Knox to live a normal life. "I admire him for what he has been through and his effort to try to make it back," Drake said Tuesday. ... "He had to work himself back up to where he could even walk. He had to work to get himself up out of bed. Hopefully, he'll continue to work and get himself back to where he can have the quality of life that he needs to have." In terms of football being a part of Knox's future, the outlook is bleak. Multiple sources with direct knowledge of Knox's status said he is unlikely to play again because of the extent of the injury coupled with his slight build.

After that injury, I was happy to see that he could walk.

Don't push your luck, Johnny.

He's very fortunate indeed to be able to walk away from the game.
