TALLAHASSEE, Fla. Terrance Shannon is very sore after he suffered a neck sprain in Saturdays loss at Virginia, Florida State assistant coach Stan Jones said.
Shannon fell to the floor after hitting his head on Evan Noltes hip while going for a loose ball late in the game. The junior was placed on a backboard and then a stretcher.
A 6-foot-8 forward who is the teams leading rebounder, Shannon stayed in a hospital in Charlottesville, Va., on Saturday night with Florida State assistant coach Corey Williams, but doctors allowed Shannon to make the trip back to Tallahassee on Sunday afternoon.
Theyre still doing some tests to see if there was any bruising to the spinal cord, Jones said. In regards to his playing status, that still remains to be seen.
Jones said that Shannon has a lot of pain but has full mobility. But he later admitted that Shannon could be out for what looks like an extended period of time.
