Kansas State defensive end Meshak Williams was injured late in the first half of the Cotton Bowl after helmet-to-helmet contact with a teammate while trying to make a tackle.
Williams remained on his back after the play in the closing seconds of the second quarter.
Medical personnel tended to Williams on the field for several minutes before putting him on a stretcher and then on a cart. Williams gave a thumbs-up signal while being placed on the cart, then extended his right arm high and flashed a Wildcats sign.
Williams was pursuing Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson, who ducked to avoid being hit. Williams then made contact with linebacker Emmanuel Lamur, who was coming from the other side.
There was no immediate word of Williams' specific injury or condition.

Arkansas matched a school record with its 11th victory, beating No. 11 Kansas State 29-16 in the Cotton Bowl at Cowboys Stadium.
The Cotton Bowl is an appropriate season-ender for 11th-ranked Kansas State and coach Bill Snyder. When the Wildcats were first in the Cotton Bowl 15 years ago, it was a watershed moment for the long-struggling program. They went again at the end of the 2000 season, during a stretch of six 11-win seasons in seven years before Snyder's brief retirement.
Arkansas and Kansas State were both snubbed by the BCS, but that won't slow them down in Dallas.
