    Hopefully he isn't paralyzed. Hopefully he doesn't have any long-term damage.

    I had a stinger in my spine once and I remember having trouble breathing for a couple of minutes. Very scary. It is different than the ones you get in your arm.

    Still haven't heard whether he's paralyzed or not...

    Hopefully he isn't. I assumed they would have mentioned it. You can break your neck without being paralyzed. Hopefully that is the case.

    Just heard about this. I hope they do a full work up on this kid before sending him back out (if he's okay).

    Crazy thing is it never should have happened. Tulsa was up 32 in the fourth quarter - and they go for it on fourth down? Running up the score just ruined a kids life

    It happened on the final play of the first half.

    Tulsa played a vanilla second half just to get it over with.

    Heard yesterday that while he did fracture his spine, his neck is not broken.

    Not sure what area of the spine but there is hope that he will walk again.
