Amongst the news of NFL players involvement with domestic violence, substance abuse, and alike, we have this. A player guying food for the homeless and personally passing it out, in a city that he doesn’t even call home. Oh, did we mention he’s recovering from a hit that left him unconscious and with a surgery-requiring traumatic neck injury?

Richardo Lockett just earned a lot of people’s respect. The Seattle Seahawks wide receiver/return man took a monstrous shot from the Dallas Cowboys’ Jeff Heath and was knocked unconscious at mid field during last week’s heavily hyped matchup.

Lockette was carted off the field at AT&T Stadium and went neck surgery in a Dallas area hospital to repair torn ligaments in his neck. After a successful operation, he left the hospital and did the first thing an injured athlete does after an ugly, season-ending injury: give food to the homeless.

According to TMZ, Lockette left his hospital in Dallas and encountered a sidewalk serving as a residence to the local homeless. Understanding this could not go unaddressed, Lockette and his driver stopped at a nearby McDonald’s and brought back 100 cheeseburgers for those in need.

Lockette’s father, Earl, spoke about his son’s gesture to TMZ:

“He had a neck brace on while he was passing out the burgers,” Earl said. “So some people were like, ‘What happened to you?’ But Ricardo didn’t try and bring attention to who he was…Some people knew who he was. But this was more about Ricardo seeing people who were in worse shape than him, and wanting to help them however he could.”

That’s a pretty nice thing to do. Helping out the hungry is a kind, good thing to do—particularly if you, yourself, can’t even chew due to a cage of plastic encasing your newly cut-open neck.
