Neck Injury to Keep Pollack Out of Entire 2007 Season

Bengals linebacker David Pollack will not be playing a down for the Bengals in 2007 according to ESPN.  The former first-round draft pick suffered a career-threatening neck injury in the second game of the 2006 season vs the Browns making a tackle.  He will continue rehabing the neck and still is hoping for making it back for the 2008 season.  The word from ESPN is that Pollack will not give up and retire, and that he will look to get the neck stronger and that after another year of doing that he’ll be back on the field.  Sources say that Bengals and team officials had already acknowledged it would be a long shot for him to play this season. The team will address his status at the outset of training camp. The 25-year-old sustained a fracture to the C6 vertebra in the first Browns game as he tackled Browns running back Reuben Droughns on the second play from scrimmage.
