CLEVELAND-- Ten years ago, TJ Carrie spent weeks in a cardiac unit with an extremely rare heart condition and thought he would never play football again.

As a teen, he made a full recovery from surgery on his right coronary artery.  On Tuesday, the Cleveland Browns cornerback visited patients at Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital to share his inspiring story.
