I remember Hakim Akbar and the fact that he didn't play in the 2001 SB but I don't remember his car accident. He seems to be doing well. http://calsun.canoe.ca/Sports/Football/2006/05/26/1600033.html Hakim Akbar was told heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d never play football again now he is ready to be reborn. During his 2001 rookie season with the New England Patriots, the linebacker was driving home after another victory for the eventual Super Bowl champions. Before he reached his destination that night, Akbar dozed off behind the wheel of his Cadillac Escalade and rolled it into a ditch off the freeway. He was thrown 30 ft. through the sunroof. Ã¢â‚¬Å“I ended up in the woods and I could see my truck way over a long way away,Ã¢â‚¬ said Akbar, whoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s attending the Calgary StampedersÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ training camp.
