Bad news for Ron Springs

Former Cowboys running back Ron Springs, who seven months ago received a life-saving kidney transplant from friend and former teammate Everson Walls, has slipped into a coma and is in a Dallas hospital.
Springs, 50, suffers from diabetes.
The Washington Redskins have allowed Springs' son, Shawn, to leave the team to be with his father.
"All I can do is keep him and Everson in my prayers like I've awlays done," said former teammate, Hall of Fame offensive tackle Rayfield Wright. "I'd encourage everyone to do the same."
