Cal player to be released from hospital
BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) — California safety Avery Sebastian has movement in all his extremities after being taken to the hospital following a hard collision during a scrimmage at Memorial Stadium that appeared to leave him immobilized.
The school released a statement Monday night saying Sebastian is resting at Highland General Hospital in Oakland and is expected to be released soon.
Sebastian thanked for their positive thoughts and prayers after the scary incident. Reports out of Cal’s scrimmage said Sebastian hit running back Jeffrey Coprich on a run up the middle and immediately went down.
Sebastian, listed as the starting strong safety on the preseason depth chart, didn’t appear to move for more than 15 minutes before being taken to the hospital by ambulance.
