A college football player was hospitalized with a "serious head injury" on Saturday night. Here is an update on his status.

Christion Abercrombie, a linebacker for Tennessee State, collapsed and was taken to the hospital during his team's loss to Vanderbilt on Saturday evening.

The school's president, Dr. Glenda Glover, issued an update on his status this afternoon:

"The TSU family asks for your continued prayers for Christion Abercrombie and his family. Christion remains hospitalized following an on-the-field injury during the TSU Vandy football game. Again, please keep him and the family in your thoughts and prayers," she writes.

Abercrombie began his collegiate career at Illinois. He redshirted the 2016 season and played in several games in 2017 before transferring to Tennessee State.
