On Thursday night, one college football program had its worst fears realized when a player left the stadium in an ambulance.
Arkansas State defensive back Samy Johnson was down on the field for several minutes after getting his by a player on his own team. After being tended to on the field, he was eventually stretchered off.
According to a report from AStateNation, Johnson was loaded into an ambulance. According to multiple reports, the defensive back had his jersey and shoulder pads cut off before leaving the game.
Specifics of his injury were not immediately known. However, given the fact he was taken away in an ambulance it’s clear this is a serious issue.
