We told you in March that Chicago Bears linebacker Khaseem Greene switched to No. 52 for his second NFL season in tribute to former Rutgers teammate Eric LeGrand, who was paralyzed from the neck down during a 2010 game. Greene and LeGrand remain close from their days as roommates at Rutgers. Greene has LeGrand's "Believe" motto and the No. 52 tattooed on his left leg, and he has continued to support his former teammate. Greene was in attendance last month for LeGrand's fourth annual A Walk to Believe, which raised over $65,000 for spinal cord injury research. In an interview with the Chicago Bears' website, Greene opened up about the inspiration he draws from LeGrand.
