Ole Miss has positive update on player airlifted to hospital after serious injury
Earlier this morning Ole Miss freshman Damarcus Thomas sustained a serious injury in practice that left him motionless and without feeling in his body for several minutes. The tight end from Whatley, Alabama did regain some feeling and limited movement before he was airlifted by helicopter.
While the extent of the injury, or the circumstances surrounding it are unknown. But some positive news was recently released in a statement from Pat Jernigan, Assistant Athletic Director for Sports Medicine at Ole Miss.
“Following the injury at practice this morning Damarcus traveled by ambulance to Baptist Memorial Hospital in Oxford and was airlifted from there to Memphis Regional Medical Center. Evaluations have all been positive to this point. He has regained movement in all of his extremities, and the physicians are optimistic.”
