RIP Javan Camon
Indoor football player dies after making hit in Florida
Feb. 27, 2007
CBS SportsLine.com wire reports
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- A defensive back for Daytona Beach's minor league football team, who was knocked unconscious in a helmet-to-helmet block, died from a broken neck, according to a preliminary autopsy report.
Javan Camon, a 6-foot-1, 180-pound defender for the Daytona Beach Thunder of the World Indoor Football League, probably was killed instantly Monday, said Dave Byron, Volusia County spokesman, speaking on behalf of the medical examiner.
Based on the initial examination, Byron said the death is going to be ruled an accident.
Camon was injured when he tried to tackle the ball carrier in the fourth quarter of a game. A Columbus Lions receiver blocked Camon on the play, sending him to the turf.
He went into cardiac arrest, Daytona Beach police said. Paramedics and doctors at the arena tried to revive him on the field for 10 minutes before taking him to a hospital. He was pronounced dead on arrival Monday night, ambulance spokesman Mark O'Keefe said.

gustoonarmy added a topic in New York Jets Message BoardDre Bly ~good value?The lions have said that Bly is on his way , for possibly a 2-3 rounder. I say we nab him at that value.
Dre' Bly could soon be in another city, with the Lions looking to deal.
The story out of Detroit is that the Lions are willing to part with cornerback Dre' Bly, and it should not take a first-round pick ... or maybe not even a second-round pick. From what I could gather, the best landing spot for Bly is Denver for possibly a third-round pick and a player or two. Detroit has a number of needs, and the Denver roster has a few guys who could help them. The sad and sudden death of running back Damien Nash will probably put the trade talks on hold for the time being though.
