Former Tennessee State University linebacker Christion Abercrombie received an offer from the Tennessee Titans to join the coaching staff as an intern.

Abercrombie’s path to the NFL was anything but ordinary, sustaining a head injury back in 2018 during a game against Vanderbilt that nearly cost the student-athlete his life.

Abercrombie spent 18 days at Vanderbilt University Medical Center after arriving in critical condition, requiring two brain surgeries to tend to the head trauma.
