      What's the story behind that, I wonder? Was it a donated kidney or did he need to have one removed?

        I don't know you can go to his site and view his blog though "the wright stuff"

        Even gives some doctors opinions on the health of someone with one kidney and the concerns provided by people on the forum.

          I remember reading something about this on nfldraftscout a couple of days ago. Apparently when he was born he had a non-functioning kidney and it was removed at age 8. Practically this means nothing except that in the event of an injury to the other kidney (quite uncommon in the NFL - avulsion happens mostly in sharp deceleration like hitting the ground after falling from a balcony).

          My 0.02 as someone with a medical degree (blowing own trumpet here) is that this is of no real significance whatsoever to his ability to play in the NFL. Far more common problems like migraines and epilepsy would be way way way more of a concern.

            True I mean how many players in the NFL need a new kidney?

            And if he did lose it, coldn't he get a donor jimmy?

              Why would you get a second kidney if you have one that's fully functional? You can live a perfectly normal life with a single kidney. It's a redundancy in the human body.

                He could but I doubt he'd ever play again. Transplants aren't all they're cracked up to be. The common perception is that its like replacing a tire on your car, just swap it over and you're good. In reality you need to take immunosuppressant drugs the rest of your life (as unless he has a twin the donor is never a perfect match) which render him susceptible to a whole host of things.

                Look, in short, if I were an NFL GM this news would not affect my decision to draft him one iota.

                Maybe Antonio could give him one of his kidneys?

                  Antonio is only his cousin, so it wouldn't be a perfect match, correct?

                      Why are we worrying about him getting a transplant if he has a fully functional kidney?

                        The entire point of internet forums is to blow everything way out of proportion.

                            That's right, I just threw that in because his cous plays in the NFL.

                            Firstly you need the right blood group but you also need these things called HLA (human leucocyte antigens) molecules to match. It gets complicated after that, basically the more things match, the less immunosuppressant drugs you need to take as there is less urge from the body to reject the kidney.

                            Also, I don't know either how we got to talking about this. HE'S NOT GOING TO LOSE HIS KIDNEY DURING HIS NFL CAREER!"
