Former player Marc Buoniconti relates to Tulane safety Devon Walker’s condition

Published: September 12, 2012

Marc Buoniconti knows first-hand the pain a spinal cord injury can cause. In 1985, as a linebacker for The Citadel, he suffered a cervical spine injury like Tulane’s Devon Walker did last weekend against Tulsa.

Buoniconti said he saw Walker’s injury and believes he can recover.

“I saw the play. His arms and legs did not go limp,” said Buoniconti, who was paralyzed from the shoulders down and spent the seven months after his injury on a respirator. “So I feel that if he has an incomplete injury that his chance of recovery can dramatically increase.”
