Nebraska quarterback Tommy Armstrong suffered a potentially serious injury during the Cornhuskers’ game against Ohio State on Saturday.
After awkwardly landing on his head, Armstrong lay on the turf being tended to by trainers for several minutes. He was then taken off the field on a stretcher, before being taken to a nearby hospital.
Several players and coaches from Nebraska and Ohio State surrounded Armstrong while he was being treated by trainers. Armstrong’s fiancé also came down from her seat to escort him off the field.

Thumbs up from Tommy Armstrong — and his Dad — as the Nebraska QB is carted off the field to the ambulance. Still a petrifying deal.
