I wish him all the luck in the world

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Jacksonville Jaguars offensive tackle Richard Collier, who was shot earlier this month, is paralyzed below the waist and has had his left leg amputated, his doctors said Monday.

They said Collier, who had 14 bullet wounds, is now in stable condition after being previously listed in critical condition.

Just nice to see he survived because 14 gun shots is pretty crazy. An Angel touched him that day.

Damn shame.

My prayers to him and his family. An angel was definitely with him that day for him to survive all of those gunshot wounds.

How do you know it was his fault? Innocent people get victimized all the time.

The motive behind the attack on Collier is unknown, but investigators said earlier he appeared to be targeted. Police have made no arrests in the shooting.

jus because he was 'targeted' doesnt mean he lived a thug type of live.

athletes are high profiled celebrities, even backup lineman. it could of been a old high school or college friend or something that is jealous that he is making all this money. even a jealous relative, or jus somebody with a sick mind who jus decided to do that.

one of my closest friends was shot 7 times, never even did as much as cheat on a test, was never late for school none of that. sometimes stuff like that

See, just because your famous doesn't mean that your invincible! Sad that this had to happen. In my mind, if those shooters wanted him dead then he would be right now.

never said he was, "about gangbanging"....do you think its just a coincidence that its always the african america athletes involved in these shootings? my point was, if you disassociate yourself from the criminal elements, which includes certain people and certain places, you'll vastley decrease your chances of becoming a victim of these so called " random shootings"

You guys have no right to blame Collier for this. My prayers are with him, his family, his friends, and his teammates.
