Bilateral leg weakness.....does this sound familiar?

A bulging/herniated disc in the spine can cause pressure on the sciatic nerves running down the legs. The symptoms usually include pain, though -- often quite severe.

He'll be fine once he gets his glaucoma treatment via UPS... or was it Fed-ex?

Sounds like a sciatic nerve issue.

Been there. Done that. If that's what it is at his age it should be treatable. Obviously nowifare3 is a big fan.

It's disappointing because Simpson, our supposed deep threat, has played a grand total of one game since arriving and now appears to be disabled. We need this guy. Our offense is decent but needs a true deep threat that will force D backs to play deeper.

I don't know why everyone has high expectations or even really supports this guy. He was signed to a one year contract because he was just convicted of a felony earlier this year and by all accounts is a middle of the road 26 year old pot head who drops about as many passes as he catches...

From personal experience I can say a slipped disk can cause more numbness that pain.

GET OVER-the "Deep Threat" Comments for Simpson, good grief. You need a Deep threat QB to make that happen, and Ponder is far from that. Simpson hopefully will be a great addition. The guy has alot of talent! But having a deep threat WR isn't going to happen with Ponder's style. Many don't like the comment, but it's called reality.
