A story on Kyle Quincey, and what he was able to overcome since his injury last year.

Just over a year ago, that simplest of celebrations wouldn't have been possible. Quincey took a hit that dislocated his left shoulder so severely, it stretched a nerve running just under his armpit to the point where he lost sensation and range of motion.
