Green Bay Packers running back Jamaal Williams suffered a scary injury on Thursday night when Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Derek Barnett hit him a bit late following a reception in the first quarter. Early Friday morning, Williams' mom provided an update on her son's status on Twitter.
Williams, following the hit, appeared to be unconscious. He eventually came to and showed fans that he had movement in all four of his extremities. He was then taken to the hospital.
Williams' mom tweeted just after midnight that her son's test results have been "positive" so far. She thanked Packers fans and BYU - Williams' alma mater.
BYU actually responded - sending its support.
Williams was drafted by the Packers in the 2017 NFL Draft after a stellar career at BYU. He started seven games in his rookie year and eight games last season.
Let's hope Williams makes a full recovery. We'll keep you updated on his status.
