It was a scary moment last night. Darryl Williams is a young offensive lineman and from the view that I had on my TV, he seemingly wasn’t hit all that hard. But after a field goal attempt, Williams was down on the ground and wasn’t moving.
For 15 minutes, Williams was being tended to on the field, with his teammates and coaches looking on. Concern was clear and evident from just about everyone that was paying attention to the event last night.
Prayers for Darryl Williams!!! Hate to see my bros down like this !— Brandon Holloway (@hollowayyyy) October 23, 2016
After he was taken to the hospital and it was reported that he had movement in his extremities, there wasn’t much information available.
Darryl Williams is being transported to UK Chandler Hospital for further evaluation. He has movement in all of his extremities.— MSU Football (@HailStateFB) October 23, 2016
@HailStateFB Darryl Williams is doing fine. He & some of AT staff waiting on test results, which takes a few hours. They'll fly back in AM.— Bill Martin (@MSUBillMartin) October 23, 2016
However, it appears that Williams is indeed okay. After the test results were received by Williams and the training staff, they are now preparing to come back to Starkville.
Great news. Darryl Williams is doing fine. Tests were negative. He and our ath. training staff will fly back to Starkville later this AM.— MSU Football (@HailStateFB) October 23, 2016
What was a scary situation last night appears to have settled a bit. It’s great to hear that Williams will indeed be coming home to Starkville and that the tests went the way that everybody hoped. At the end of the day, football is just a sport. It’s a game. People are more important than it. And it’s good to see that Williams is doing well.
