Ellis went from nonfactor in Dallas to a dominator in his new position after spending most of his career as a defensive end. He had 12 1/2 sacks, forming a dynamic pass-rushing force with All-Pro linebacker DeMarcus Ware.
“It’s been great,” Ellis said. “I thank God for blessing me, letting me get out there and have a good support group, starting from the doctors. We have good people here, the coaches have done a good job working me back into it. They’ve been telling me ‘You’re fine, you’re fine.’ It was just getting the confidence to get out there and do it.”
Nikita Koloff appeared on the wrestling-radio.com online show on Wednesday night and gave an update on Lex Luger. He said he’s traveled twice recently to see Luger. He said Luger is still in a wheelchair after the San Francisco wrestling convention fiasco, and that for a long time, he was paralyzed from the neck down. After Luger spent a week at Stanford Hospital, tests determined nothing. He was sent to the Atlanta Rehab Center where their testing also came back with no answers. According to Koloff, “Lex said his spinal column short circuited,” but lately he’s been making “remarkable improvement.” According to Koloff, Luger can lift his legs and move his torso, and can hold a can in his hand. Koloff said Luger told him, “I’ve had 49 good years with these legs, and if I never walk again, I’ll be the best wheelchairer for Jesus, you’ve ever seen.”
