The San Antonio Spurs were shocked earlier in the week when their backup point guard, T.J. Ford, after playing just 14 games, abruptly retired at the age of 28.

The former Texas Longhorns star’s recently had his spine surgically repaired and did not want to risk anymore injuries. That injury at one time sidelined him for an entire NBA season.

He had his #11 jersey retired by the university. Ford is one of only four in the school’s history to have be so honored; Earl Campbell and Ricky Williams in football and Roger Clemens in baseball.

The Houston native was a 2003 NBA Draft first round pick of the Milwaukee Bucks, 8th overall.

The 6’0, 165-pound guard also played with Indiana in the NBA. He also found time to play in Croatia during the NBA lockout.

Roethlisberger returns as Steelers steamroll Browns, 28-10; Colt McCoy shines for Browns

When the 2010 NFL training camps opened, most NFL experts around the country felt the Steelers would be in trouble having to use backup quarterbacks Dennis Dixon, Charlie Batch and Byron Leftwich during Ben Roethlisberger’s four-game suspension.

Well, the Steelers are going to overcome any adversity and they did. Even without their suspended QB Ben Roethlisberger, for violating the NFL’S personal conduct policy after a Georgia college student accused him of sexually assaulting her in a bar back in March, the team went 3-1.

Ben Roethlisberger returned Sunday for a home game against the injury-riddled Cleveland Browns and looked like he never missed a game or practice. He threw 3 touchdown passes and with the help of the defense, pushed the Steelers in control of the AFC North Division.

The Steelers are 4-1 and back in first place in the division as they will embark on a tough three-game road road trip to Miami, New Orleans and Cincinnati. Those are three cities where it is tough to win and the Steelers say they’re ready for the challenge.

The bright spot for the Cleveland Browns is that rookie QB Colt McCoy played as if he was an NFL veteran against one of the top 5 defenses in the league. Starting due to ankle injuries to veterans Seneca Wallace and Jake Delhomme, the former Texas Longhorns star showed why he was a Heisman candidate the past two years, going 23 of 33 passing for 281 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions.
