Florida Football: Retired Florida OL Rod Johnson Vows He'll "Get A Second Opinion Until I Get Cleared"

Florida offensive lineman Rod Johnson was forced to abort his career this spring due to a congenital spinal condition. The decision left Johnson devastated about his dream being cut short, and now it appears he still is unwilling to give up on playing football.

Johnson tweeted this afternoon that he'll keep seeking medical opinions until he gets one that allows him to return to the field. 

Johnson's passion is commendable, but his mind is as important as his heart in this matter. There is no need to risk further injury, and if doctors continue to recommend he not play football, he'll eventually have to accept that outcome.
