What looked like a devastating injury for Darryl Williams appears to be nothing more than a scare now.

It looks like Mississippi State Bulldogs lineman Darryl Williams is going to be fine.

Williams suffered a head/neck scary injury in Saturday’s clash with the Kentucky Wildcats that left him motionless on the field for about 15 minutes. He was eventually loaded onto a stretcher and taken out of Commonwealth Stadium in an ambulance to be transported to a local hospital, where further tests showed no major damage as he had movement in all extremities.

He remained there overnight with MSU training staff, and the school has since announced Williams was going back home to Starkville.

Former UK assistant AD Scott Stricklen was thankful of how his former school handled this scary situation.

It’s unclear what the extent of Williams’ injuries are and when/if he’ll return to the field this season, but all that ultimately matters is he’s in good health and can go on with his life in a normal manner.

That looked like anything but a certainty when he was lying on the field with no movement for far too long, but it looks like it was nothing more than a scare.
