there is a program on espn called 30-30 and all of the manning brothers planed to attend ole miss for football. cooper is the oldest and he went first. he noticed some atrophy in his arms and parts of his body. they went to the **EDIT** clinic to be evaluated and he had a rare form of stenosis which is hardly seen. he had surgery to correct but unfortunately he developed a problem with blood clots on his spinal chord. they operated and he almost died. he had to learn how to walk again but now he can walk but no longer play football or any other sports, he said he was one bad hit away from total paralysis so they caught it early before this but as i mentioned the blood clot on the spine almost killed him.. because of this the rest of the manning brothers went on their own way for football and only eli went to ole miss. payton went to tennessee and the rest is history. apparently cooper is doing very well not and has a job and a family. he said the ** EDIT** clinic did a whole battery of tests to determine what was wrong with him. without all of these tests they might not have found out his unique problem and rare form of stenosis.
