GREATER Western Sydney star forward Jeremy Cameron has revealed he thought his career may have been over after a serious knock to his ear early last season.
Cameron suffered the injury against Gold Coast in round six and despite having midweek surgery ran out against Port Adelaide the following week.
The 21-year-old has only now spoken of the huge concern surrounding his health and his AFL career at the time of the injury.
"A specialist put me in a booth and tested me and said you probably shouldn't play the game again," Cameron told the Daily Telegraph.
"He said, 'I've seen people with a better ear than yours is right now and they can't balance at all for the rest of their lives'.
