Miami's Parrish feeling better after hard hit
CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- Miami receiver Roscoe Parrish was in
stable condition at a Tallahassee hospital Sunday, one day after
being hit hard in the chest against Florida State.
Parrish, one of the team's top playmakers, left Saturday's game
in the second quarter after cornerback Stanford Samuels knocked him
to the ground on a crossing route. He was taken to Tallahassee
Memorial Hospital, where test results showed no internal bleeding,
coach Larry Coker said Sunday.
Parrish's helmet was knocked off on the play. He tried to walk
off the field under his own power but was wobbly and dropped to a
knee. He was down for several minutes before being helped to the
locker room. He complained of pains in his chest and abdomen, Coker
"He's talking on the phone, he's in good spirits, so I think
things are fine there," Coker said. "The prognosis I have for
Roscoe right now is very, very good."
