    Steelers running back coach badly burned in fire



    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...urned-in-fire/

    He will live. He is currently in a medically induced coma. He has burns on 30-50 percent of his body, on his arms and legs and the back of his head.

    I hope he isn't too disfigured and doesn't lose motor movements or anything like that. Thankfully he didn't get burnt on the face. Good luck, Kirby.

    Kirby Wilson is only 50. No matter which team he coaches, we are all his fans today.
    Here's hoping you fully recover coach... Bc

    It's a really horrible injury and it hits real close to home for me. In 2006, I lost my mother to burn injuries (she was 65). The key factor in this one is going to be age (the skin regenerates faster the younger you are). He's 50 and has about 30-50% burn coverage (mom had about 50%), but he should be OK as long as there's no infection setbacks. He's in for a long road, but his age and presumably physical condition should enable him to get through. Setting all rivalries aside, my thoughts and prayers are with him and his family.

    da Bb, so sorry for the loss of your mom 6 years ago. It is an awful way to go, and I wish you and your family peace as the years go by... Bc

    No chance at a full recovery with that amount of burn damage. On the other hand, he's a married man in his 50's....there could be worse circumstances for the amount of scarring he will incur. Sadly, it'll be a very painful recovery as well. Hope he pulls through and his family is OK.

    Hopefully this doesn't provide the "Zimmer Effect".

    Terrible, terrible, terrible news. Glad to hear the injuries aren't thought to be life-threatening (though I tremble a bit at the thought of the induced coma--that's never a good sign). I wish him the best & hope for a complete recovery--although it will almost have to be drawn out & painful if skin grafts are needed, & it sounds like they will be.
