Shawn Springs' dad is in a coma

Hat tip Blogging the Boys among others. Redskins Insider:

Cornerback Shawn Springs has been excused from Redskins Park - he wasn't here yesterday- to be with his father, Ron, 50, a former NFL player who is hospitalized in Dallas.

According to published reports, Ron Springs slipped into a coma during a procedure to have a cyst removed from his elbow Saturday and is not doing well at all. Some reports quote anonymous former teammates as saying Springs is on a respirator.

Will keep you posted and my thoughts and prayers are with Shawn, Ron, and the Springs family.
