Greg Jones Update

The Senior Linebacker Is Walking & Will Be Fine.

NCAA Football: Rutgers at Ohio State
Greg Jones gets carted off the field
Greg Bartram-USA TODAY Sports

Senior Linebacker Greg Jones had a scary moment this afternoon. In the first quarter against Ohio State, Jones had a helmet-to-helmet hit with another Rutgers player while attempting a tackle. Jones almost immediately fell to the turf and was hardly moving.

We were able to see some movement in his hands and legs, and there was word that he was responsive, but he had his face mask removed and was strapped to a stretcher and carted off the field into an ambulance.

Rutgers Football, Big Ten Network, and ESPN all say Jones has been further responsive in the hospital, making the situation more hopeful.
