My prayers are with Kevin. Despite what the prognosis says, I hope he has a full recovery.

From a Colts fan in Indy, thoughts and prayers to him and his family.

My thoughts and prayers are definitely with him and his family.

It may just be me, but I'm surprised UM hasn't said anything publicly, especially with the relationship they portray with their student and alumni base.
(and yes, I'm an alum also)

My thoughts and prayers are with you Kevin. God speed for a full recovery.
