Lou Gehrig's Disease - Motor Neuron Disease - Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
Thought it had been cured by now? Still no known cause. Still no cure. Still quickly fatal. Still outrageous.

Watch The Coin Toss!

The Ravens’ director of player development, O.J. Brigance, who is battling Lou Gehrig’s disease, has been an inspiration to the entire Ravens organization this season. Brigance, who played seven years at linebacker in the NFL, including two seasons in Baltimore (2000-01), has earned numerous honors from the NFL for his player development program, including the league’s Best Overall Player Development Program, the Most Outstanding Internship Program and Outstanding Continuing Education Program. The Ed Block Courage Award Foundation recognized Brigance with its Johnny Unitas Tops in Courage Award last March. Brigance, who was awarded the game ball after the Divisional Playoff victory in Tennessee, will be escorted in a wheelchair to mid-field on Sunday.

Game time is 6:30 pm EST on Sunday. It's on CBS. Be there or be square.
