Five-star recruit Richard LeCounte scared everyone on Thursday night, as he had to be taken off the field via ambulance. The situation was extremely tense at the time, and everyone was holding their breath and hoping for the best.
LeCounte was moving his extremities soon after the injury, and it now appears he is in at least good enough condition to tweet his thanks to everyone for their prayers and best wishes.
Scout's Chad Simmons was on the scene, and is currently reporting that LeCounte did not suffer a concussion and apparently suffered no broken bones.
For what was a very scary situation, it looks like we may have actually gotten a non-scary outcome. We will update you more on any potential injuries as we learn more about how LeCounte is progressing.
