nvm... always wondered tho the past few years..
Scott had cornea transplants during his childhood. Several years ago, when working out at a New York Jets mini-camp, a ball launched from a Jugs machine struck him in the eye.
According to Scott in a 2002 interview with the Charlotte Observer, "I had gotten in shape and (Jets coach) Herman Edwards gave me permission to go to minicamp with them. I was doing a feature for ESPN on what it's like to be in minicamp. But I was serious about it.
"The day I was there, there were eight wideouts and the wide receiver coach said I was rated number six. I didn't have any delusions of grandeur. I was hoping I'd be good enough to be a scrub wide receiver or a practice wide receiver in the NFL. I found that out that day. I didn't disappoint myself and I didn't embarrass myself.
"At end of practice all the wideouts went to the Jugs Machine, it's a machine that shoots balls out. I had never done that before. I had been catching everything that day in practice from the quarterbacks. I was probably a little close and the thing was fast and the thing was faster than I thought it was."
Asked about how serious it was, he responded. "It was serious. I had emergency surgery that night and was out of work for a couple months. It was tough. I had some eye surgery before so I knew how severe it was. It was probably more scary that day, not knowing. The next day came and I knew it would be a long recovery back. I still need some more surgery. The eye is not great now. But I had some time off."
During SportsCenter broadcasts, he now requires a teleprompter to be placed closer to him. He also wears thicker glasses to help him read the teleprompter.[/code]
