UNC's Nazair Jones: Six Years Later

Tuesday marks six years since the UNC defensive tackle was diagnosed with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- A 16-year-old boy was admitted to UNC Children's Hospital on December 13, 2010 - his birthday - unsure of his ability to walk again. 

Six years later, on his 22nd birthday, Nazair Jones celebrated the confident, powerful man he'd become, having made a major impact on the North Carolina football program -- as a talented defensive tackle, leader and role model -- and the Chapel Hill community.

Next up: the NFL.
