Beyond the Games: Gerard Rhatigan


During a week one win over CBA, Shaker lost Gerard Rhatigan for the year when the running back suffered a gruesome injury while being tackled -- breaking three bones in his left ankle, and a compound fracture in the right leg.

In an effort to brighten his spirits, Orleans Darkwa of the New York Giants surprised Gerard with a phone call while he was in the hospital.

Tonight, it was Rhatigan's turn to pull off a surprise -- rolling up in his wheelchair during the first quarter of the Blue Bisons' game against Schenectady.
