0 Comments

Recently, New England’s defensive tackle Kyle Love was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. But this Wednesday, less than two weeks after his diagnosis, the 26-year old defensive tackle got the bad news: he was cut by the team with a non-football-injury designation.

The Patriots are at it again; yet another player tossed onto the trash heap.

The 6-foot-1, 315-pound Love, who played college football at Mississippi State, was signed by the Patriots as an undrafted free agent in 2010. Since then, Love records a total of 25 starts in 41 career games, including 11 starts last season.

“We have been informed by the New England Patriots that Kyle Love will be released NFI (non-football injury/illness). This comes on the heels of Kyle having been diagnosed within the past two weeks with Type 2 diabetes.” stated Love’s agent, Richard Kopelman of KLASS Sports.

Kopelman said that prior to the diagnosis, Love lost some weight, including muscle mass, but added that he was assured by doctors that he’s in good health and that he’s able to keep his condition in check with medication and a proper diet.

“Naturally, we are disappointed that the Patriots decided to part ways with Kyle, especially in light of the fact that a number of elite, professional athletes with diabetes — both Type 1, which is known to be far more difficult to manage than Type 2 diabetes — have had very successful careers in professional football, hockey, baseball, and basketball.” added Kopelman in reference to some well known NFL players diagnosed with similar conditions.

In recent years, several NFL players have been diagnosed with diabetes. Probably the most popular is Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, who was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in 2008; two years after the Denver Broncos picked him in the first round of the NFL Draft.

Three-time Pro Bowl defensive end Michael Sinclair, who played for the Seattle Seahawks between 1992 and 2001, was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes late in his career. Offensive guard Kendall Simmos, who started 83 games for the Pittsburgh Steelers and Buffalo Bills from 2002 through 2009, also suffers from Type 1.5 (Latent Autoimmune) diabetes.

Love has resumed working out and got a weight-lifting session in Wednesday. Now Kopleman says Love will be at 100 percent soon and should be ready to take part in a training camp.

“He’s disappointed but he told me this is just a minor blip he’s expecting to overcome. He’s a great guy with a wife and a baby he’s supporting. The goal is to get back healthy, play for a new team and set himself up for a big contract next season.” Kopelman said.
