It’ll be a long road to recovery for the 26-year-old, but it seems he’s at least on the right path. There has been an overwhelming showing of support from the sports community and Pead has a lot of people behind him.
Latest on Isaiah Pead. He is stable but as family friend tells me, has a long way to go. Have seen some positive signs. https://t.co/bjmtBrRrzY
His mom told Rams head coach Jeff Fisher on Saturday that Pead’s injuries were career-ending and that he was “struggling.”
Pead was ejected from his vehicle after it went off the road and it struck several trees on its way down an embankment. Pead’s passenger, 27-year-old Wesley Richardson, is said to be doing OK.
Before getting into the accident, Pead was trying to get back into the league and worked out for the Kansas City Chiefs. He was drafted in the second round of the 2012 draft and was with the Rams for four seasons.
