Quincy Enunwa, battling a career-threatening neck injury that will keep him off the field in 2020, still hopes to play football again.
The New York Jets wide receiver said it was "devastating" to learn recently he had been ruled out for the season.
"If I'm capable of playing, then that's what I'll do," Enunwa said. "If it comes down to the fact that the doctors say I can't, there's not much I can do. There's really nothing I can do there, but if I have the ability to [play], the passion will always be there, the want-to will always be there.
"I think, aside from obviously my neck, the physical ability will always be there. It's really just about me going for the ride, I guess, because I'm not in control of that part anymore."
