    Diabetic Ron Springs awaits kidney transplant

    Former Dallas Cowboys running back Ron Springs is awaiting a kidney transplant, and it appears he has found a match in ex-teammate Everson Walls, according to a report in The Washington Post.

    Springs' son Sean, a Washington Redskins cornerback, said on Monday that Walls had agreed to donate his kidney and that an operation could take place "any day now."
    Ron Springs, 50, has diabeties and has been undergoing dialysis as he prepares for a transplant.

    Walls, a former NFL cornerback, played for the Cowboys with Springs from 1981-84.

    Springs lives in Dallas and played for eight NFL seasons. He was the Cowboys' teammate of Hall of Famer Tony Dorsett for six seasons before moving on to play his final two seasons in Tampa Bay.

    The Post has reported that Sean Springs offered to end his career and donate a kidney, but his father would not allow any of his children to be tested. Last year another relative appeared to be a match but was not.

    "Everson Walls is my dad's best friend and somebody who taught me a lot about being a cornerback in the NFL," Sean Springs said.


    Wow talk about being the ultimate teamate. Hopefully Springs get better soon
