Conner came in low to tackle Sanu, and the cornerback flipped the Rutgers receiver. But Conner’s helmet banged off Sanu’s right knee, and he went down on the field on the first play of the second quarter Friday night. Trainers worked on him for several minutes, strapping him to a backboard. He did move his feet and hands as he was carted off.
Louisville officials say Conner was conscious with feeling in his extremities.
The Scarlet Knights all came out onto the field and knelt, watching as trainers worked on Conner. Just over a year ago, many of these players watched teammate Eric LeGrand carted off the field when the defensive lineman fractured two vertebrae tackling an Army kick returner.
