Thoughts And Prayers To Daniel Fells And Family
It has been reported that New York Giants TE Daniel Fells, who has been fighting a deadly MRSA infection since October 2nd, has had a portion of his foot removed in an attempt to stop the infection from spreading. Fells has remained positive and will most likely have to endure additional surgeries with doctors saying that it is possible they may need to remove the entire foot to save his life.
This situation is dire but manageable and unlike Jason Pierre-Paul's accident this one was not Fells fault, it is believed that the infection stems from a cortisone injection to Fells ankle.
Considering that Fells has been played for 5 teams over 8 seasons and has a career 114 catches for 1,334 yards I am unable to find any official cards for him, which I find extremely odd in a time when Topps and Panini put undrafted and unsigned rookies in almost every autograph checklist. He seems to have been included in a Panini NFL stickers set but other than that there is nothing.
