On the Line: Eric LeGrand

Former Rutgers defensive tackle Eric LeGrand suffered a life-changing and career-ending neck injury in 2010 that paralyzed him from the neck down. Four-and-a-half years later, one of the questions he says he’s most consistently asked is how he stays so positive while he rehabilitates in hopes of one day walking again, and he says a large part of that is due to his old friend Jermaine, whom he wrote about this week for The Players’ Tribune.

Listen below as Eric discusses his friend Jermaine, how he keeps such a great attitude and the one thing he’d give up his Subway black card for.

The Players’ Tribune on Mad Dog Radio airs Wednesdays at 7pm ET on Sirius XM channel 85.
