Quarterback Has Normal, Healthy Son

NEW YORK—New York Jets quarterback Chad Pennington, whose torn rotator cuff has sidelined him for the remainder of the 2005 season, still has that rarest of qualities for a quarterback: a normal, healthy son. "My boy Cole is a perfectly healthy, mentally stable child," Pennington said while watching 20-month-old Cole run around the yard and play with a football like any other toddler.
