Found September 08, 2012 on Fox Sports:
Tulane safety Devon Walker was seriously hurt Saturday in a head-to-head collision with a teammate during a game with Tulsa. Tulane assistant athletic director Roger Dunaway confirmed Walker was hurt and taken off the field in an ambulance that transported him to a Tulsa hospital. Dunaway said he didn't know what type of injury Walker sustained or his medical condition. The injury occurred on the last play of the first half. Walker had a helmet-to-helmet collision with teammate Julius Warmsley while trying to tackle Tulsa back Willie Carter. Walker then rolled on his back and didn't move. FOX reported he stopped breathing when emergency medical workers removed his jersey and shoulder pads. The network said workers administered CPR and put in an IV before Walker began breathing again. A hush went over the crowd at H.A. Stadium as Walker was attended to on the field. Several coaches were in tears. Spectators bowed their heads as someone on the field led the stadium in prayer. Walker is a senior majoring in cell and molecular biology. His brother, Raynard, told The Associated Press that their mother was watching the game on television when her son was injured. The family was waiting for an update on Walker's condition, he said. ''We haven't heard much at all,'' he added. ''We're still kind of in the dark right now.''
