A scary situation took place Jordan-Hare Stadium tonight as LSU defensive back Sevyn Banks had to be taken off on a stretcher after a hit that drew a targeting penalty.

Banks laid motionless on the ground following the collision as most of the crowd booed the call.

According to several reports, Banks was responsive and talking to the medical staff. He'll now be taken to East Alabama Medical Center for further evaluations.

The former Ohio State Buckeye was injured while making a tackle on a kickoff. 

Here's to hoping it's not as serious as it looked and that he makes a quick and full recovery.
