Infection caused him to eventually had 17 different surgeries, and at one stage amputation was being considered.
Now 36 years of age, he never gave up on his dream of getting back out on the field.

The quarterback will join the likes of Dwayne Haskins and Kyle Allen in a bid for playing time. After this comeback would you really count him out of taking the starting job at some point?
