TEXAS: Sad news today of the passing of former Dallas running back Ron Springs, who died yesterday afternoon. Springs entered a Dallas hospital 4 years ago to have a benign cyst removed from his forearm. During surgery he suffered a lack of oxygen – something which never should have occured. The result? He never regained consciousness and has been in a coma since the surgery. He was 54. Fanhouse ran this story from the Associated Press.
