    Dennis Byrd, former New York Jets player, dies in car crash

    (CNN)Dennis Byrd, a former New York Jets player, died Saturday in a car wreck outside Tulsa, Oklahoma.
    Byrd, 50, played four years in the NFL before a paralyzing on-field injury ended his professional career in 1992. But the towering 6-foot-5-inch, 270-pound defensive lineman became remembered best for learning to walk again in less than a year after the accident, going on to serve as an inspiration to Jets players and fans alike.
