Stars & Stripes reports that “Green Bay Packers offensive lineman Josh Sitton is a tough competitor in a tough sport, blocking big defenders and taking heavy hits week after week. But the men and women Sitton considers tough are the wounded warriors he trained with throughout the summer at a Florida Panhandle rehabilitation center.”

“Since 2010, more than 300 injured military members from all branches of service have received care alongside college and pro athletes at Athletes Performance, an injury rehabilitation center. It’s connected to the Andrews Institute, a sports-medicine hospital founded by Dr. James Andrews. He’s been the surgeon of choice for decades for top professional athletes including Michael Jordan, Adrian Peterson and Robert Griffin III.”
