Luke Wright “responsive” after collapsing on sideline

There was a scary moment in the fourth quarter when backup quarterback Luke Wright collapsed on the sideline and had be taken off the field on a stretcher. Wright was taken to the hospital for precautionary measures, but was reportedly sitting up and talking to medical professionals in the ambulance. After the game, Mark Stoops said Wright is responsive, but admitted the scare shook everybody up.

“I think that was very scary for all of us,” Stoops said. “Nobody likes to see that. Our team was definitely a little bit shook, but once we figured out what it was, at least it was better than some other things that could have been going on, without getting into it.”

Offensive coordinator Eddie Gran reportedly went to the hospital after the game to check on Wright, and Stephen Johnson told the SEC Network that he and his teammates will visit tomorrow:

Get well soon, Luke.
