Miami Hurricanes cornerback Ladarius Gunter was released from Jackson Memorial Hospital late Saturday night and, according to the school, should be able to play for the Hurricanes again this season. Gunter was airlifted from the stadium in the fourth quarter of Miami’s 45-26 win over Virginia after colliding with a couple of Virginia players down near the goal line.
Miami coach Al Golden told reporters that the team is being very cautious with the situation:
We were just being careful because it was…a neck or shoulder or something. He was talking to us. He was moving everything. What he described, our doctors wanted to make sure we were real careful and [immobilized] him and do all those things. We’re obviously communicating to his mom right now (Sun-Sentinel).
Miami corner Tracy Howard also chimed in, sharing that Gunter didn’t lose consciousness and was even able to joke around with his teammates before being taken away.
Gunter had four tackles in the game and returned an interceptions for 81 yards to set up a touchdown.
