Surgery Causes NFL Player’s Drug Addiction


 

Surgery Causes NFL Player’s Drug Addiction – “On Good Friday in April 2009, Greg Gaines’ daughters thought their father was about to die. Their father — a Nashville high school football legend, a standout player at the University of Tennessee and a seven-year NFL veteran — lay unconscious on a bedroom floor, making guttural noises as foamy liquid spewed from his mouth. His breath was faint. His eyes appeared to be shaking in their sockets. They thought he had finally lost his battle against prescription drug abuse, a legacy of his football career.” John Glennon, Tennessean Newspaper September 5,2010. Listen to Greg tell how he overcame this demon of drug addiction.
