Former NBA and college basketball star Rodney Rogers is paralyzed as the result of an all-terrain vehicle accident, his college coach told the News & Observer of Raleigh-Durham, N.C.

Dave Odom, who coached Rogers when he earned All-America honors at Wake Forest and was the 1993 ACC Player of the Year, said Wednesday that his former star is paralyzed from the shoulders down, according to the report.

"Say a prayer for Rodney and his family,'' Odom said, according to the newspaper.

Rodney Rogers was a stud. Im sorry to hear that news about him. I know its tough for him he was one of the more musclar players like that of Karl Malone and to not be able to walk is terrible for him

Terrible to hear. Fortunate that he's well-off enough financially that he'll be able to make things a little easier.

That's really unfortunate. I'm never going to ride an ATV, those things are dangerous and can flip over very easily

Wow, very sad news. :(

Damn this is really sad news for me, Rodney was one of my all time fave guys in the league and a solid player as well (even though he was the man in college mostly). Seriously hope he gets better even though that's utopic.

He was one of my favorite players who wasn't on the Wizards or an All-Star. Sad day, he's a mayne. Definitely pray for Rodney Rogers.

Really sad, especially for me because he played on the Celtics back in the day :(

Not a good day:( Being a Wake fan I always enjoyed watching him play. He was a beast in HS and college, he was just a little too much of a tweener to be an All-Star in the NBA. He was the first guy I saw do a 360 dunk. Sad news indeed.
