FILE - In this Nov. 20, 2016, file photo, Hampton coach David Six communicates with players during the first half of the team's NCAA college basketball game against South Carolina in Columbia, S.C. Six has cherished being able to lead the Lady Pirates after suffering a stroke on June 27. The 55-year-old coach, who has guided Hampton to the NCAA Tournament in six of the past eight seasons, was told originally by doctors that he would probably need to take the year off from coaching to recover. He would have none of that. Six months later after intense "boot-camp rehab", the only remnants of the stroke are a torn rotator cuff in his right shoulder he suffered when he fell and a slight limp. He's still doing some rehab to improve his strength, including water aerobics--which he did before suffering the stroke. (AP Photo/Sean Rayford, File)

FILE - In this Dec. 23, 2018, file photo, Dallas Cowboys' Randy Gregory (94) and Jaylon Smith (54) pursue as Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston (3) prepares to throw a pass during an NFL football game in Arlington, Texas. Both Cowboys were considered second-round gambles for vastly different reasons--Gregory because of a battle with substance abuse that eventually led to three suspensions, Smith because of a devastating left knee injury in his final college game. With the Cowboys headed to a divisional playoff at the Los Angeles Rams on a team with a defense-first mentality, Gregory and Smith are looking more like second-round payoffs all the time.
