AFA lineback Morris injured
Posted by ESPN.com’s Graham Watson
AIR FORCE ACADEMY -- Air Force junior linebacker Andre Morris Jr., suffered an undisclosed injury during a punt return against TCU.
Morris was on the coverage team when he was hit in the head by TCU safety Jurell Thompson. Morris went down immediately and didn’t move. Trainers for both teams went out to assist Morris while he lay motionless on the turf.
A stretcher was wheeled out to meet Morris, but he managed to get up after several minutes and walk to the locker room under his own power.
Morris had an interception at the Air Force 4-yard line during the first drive in the first quarter.
I’ll update you on his injury status as soon as it’s released to us.
