Jacksonville Jaguars offensive tackle Richard Collier has been left paralyzed from the waist down, the result of a gunshot wounds from a robbery attempt earlier this month.
Collier’s left leg was also amputated.
Collier underwent surgery for life-threatening injuries just hours after the shooting. He was in critical condition following the surgery.
In the early morning hours of September 2nd Collier, 26 and a male friend followed two women to their apartment with plans to drop off their vehicle and continue in the Cadillac Escalade Collier was a passenger in.
While Collier and his friend waited outside the apartment someone walked up to the passenger’s side of the vehicle shooting Collier several times striking him in the shoulder, stomach, back and leg.
Collier was in his third season with the Jaguars, making the squad as an undrafted rookie.
