TSU linebacker who collapsed was injured in routine play

By The Associated Press

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A review of game footage by Tennessee State coaches shows middle linebacker Christion Abercrombie suffered a head injury in a routine play against Vanderbilt.

The Tennessean reports Abercrombie made his way to the sideline Saturday night after the play, complained about a headache and collapsed.

The newspaper reports TSU coach Rod Reed said on a WNSR show Sunday that the play wasn't dirty, and it was "just an unfortunate situation."

Reed says there's been no change in the condition of the Atlanta native, who had been rushed into emergency surgery in critical condition.

Abercrombie's mother, Staci Abercrombie, released a statement through the school's sports department on Sunday that said the linebacker is fighting. She says "We're trusting God and please continue to pray."
