Auburn's Etheridge taken to hospital

Posted by ESPN.com's Chris Low

Auburn junior safety Zac Etheridge was immobilized and carted from the field Saturday after a head-on collision with teammate Antonio Coleman.

You hate seeing these things and hope and pray that Etheridge is OK. He was taken to the hospital by ambulance, but did give a thumbs up as he was being wheeled off the field by Auburn medical personnel. The latest report was that he did have feeling in all of his extremities

The Tigers' secondary has really been unlucky going all the way back to the spring. Junior safety Mike McNeil broke his leg in the spring and hasn't played this season, while senior defensive back Aairon Savage injured his Achilles tendon in the offseason and was lost for the season.
