However, the star has claimed to feel blessed for every hour he spends with his wife and his children for six, seven months after his entire busy months.
As posted by Gwinnettdailypost.com 29th April 2015 he said:
“Sometimes by the end of the season, you’re wondering what your own name is, or everyone else’s. You’re seeing double and stuff like that. Out of season is the biggest blessing ever because it’s just me and my kiddos and my wife. It’s awesome. I get to spend every day with them and go to baseball practice and basketball practice and pick them up from the bus stop. It’s really rewarding to just come home and be Dad. I love having a busy season and then having that six, seven months where I get to spend time with just my wife, my kiddos and my friends.”
Well, this shows he is a dedicated family man who loves to spend quality time with his family. He showers unconditional love to his family and is also sincere towards his career. You can call him an all rounder personality who can juggle a personal life and professional life in a very decent manner.
Thus, the man is happy with his wife and children. Therefore, there is no reason for the man to divorce his wife or separate from his kids.
Injury: How did his Wife stand like a rock?
The neck injury he had faced on 17th September 2006, as reported by Wikipedia, while playing against rival Cleveland Browns had broken his sixth cervical vertebrae while running and tackling Reuben Droughns.
The major accident expected him to undergo with paralysis, but after conducting surgery in the vertebrae, the paralysis case was put to rest.
Instead, the player had to stay out on the field for nearly a year where he had to wear a halo brace for almost three months. The injury had made all his fan disheartened, and everyone had expected that the career of the football player would end after the serious injury.

During the period of the accident the wife of the star celeb, helped him very much to recover from the injury with a big bang. Lindsey did not only contribute to keeping a check on his weight but also helped him to reduce his weight during the healing period.
On an interview he gave to Menfitness.com he said:
"I’m 220 now. It’s a process just like everything else. I was in a halo and a neck brace for a couple of years after my injury with the Bengals, so I couldn’t do everything I wanted to do, but I slowly started to lose some weight. It’s been a process and I’m continuing to educate myself. My wife and I, we’re cognizant of what we cook and what we eat, when we eat. This next year, I have goals I want to pursue in nutrition eat more deer; I don’t want to eat anything that is processed. I look at stuff that has more than four ingredients and I’m not interested in it. It took a while to evolve and grow. The number one thing that is the most annoying thing is that everyone who sees me is like, oh my god you’re so skinny. I’m 220-230 on a given day, and I’m just like, I lost weight, I’m not small. It’s like walk up on me, dude come on!"
Well, his wife helped him come back to the television with a major transformation. His wife did not only helped him to heal physically but also helped him to get through the emotional state when he declared retirement from the field on 22nd April 2008.
It might have been a devastating situation for the player to forego his passion for football. With the help of his wife he might have take the decision to be the commentator in the game.
By doing so, his passion would not fade. I guess it’s brave for the man and women to get through such a panic situation.

The player took care of his diet plan by giving more importance on eating healthy snacks while completely avoiding junk foods. While giving advice to his fans on maintaining proper weight, he strongly recommended his fans to take baby step instep of trying to be perfect in one go. He said:
“Every journey starts with baby steps. Don’t try to be perfect. Set yourself down a path where you’ll have success, but realize that path sometimes is going to dead end and you’re going to mess up. That doesn’t mean you quit. That means you start back and you get back on the bike and start riding again. You try to be better the next time.”
