Matt Slauson played with 2 broken vertebrae

Jay on the Island : 10/10/2018 1:32 pm
According to Zak Keefer of the Indianapolis Star, Slauson said he broke two vertebrae in his spine during last Thursday’s game against the Patriots. He suffered the injury in the third quarter, and didn’t realize until after the game how serious the damage was.

“I had no idea how close I was to changing my family’s life,” Slauson said, referring to the risk of paralysis.

Slauson played all 83 snaps during the game.

The Colts signed Slauson this offseason to lend some stability to both the offensive line and the locker room. He suggested he wanted to return next year, since he’s set to become an unrestricted free agent.

Is he planning to play this week with what he knows.

I know Ajaji played with a broken bone in his back.
Didn't play football

but in January of 2017, I slipped/fell at home and fractured my T9, T10 and T12. I was quite active the next 2 days but in a lot of pain. Finally visited the hospital 2 days later.

Took about 6 months to completely heal but I was 57.

He was put on IR so he won't play either way. From the sound of it, he's done for the year, if not longer.
I met Slauson once

He's a great guy and a real family man. Hope he heals quickly and fully.
