Cal junior receiver Trevor Davis, whose fourth-quarter injury on a kickoff return against UCLA silenced the Memorial Stadium crowd, was taken by ambulance to a local hospital but was moving his arms and legs and talking, coach Sonny Dykes reported.
“He said he felt OK,” Dykes said. “The signs from the field all looked good.”
Note: We will update this story as soon as Cal provides news from the hospital.
A native of Martinez and transfer from Hawaii, Davis stayed on the turf for more than 10 minutes after being hit by UCLA’s Ryan Hofmeister with 3 minutes, 34 seconds left in the Bears’ 36-34 loss.
Davis gave a thumbs-up sign to fans while strapped to a gurney and driven out of the stadium. The crowd responded by chanting his name. Davis, who scored his sixth touchdown of the season in the game, was scheduled to undergo tests at Highland Hospital in Oakland on Saturday night to confirm he has no head or spinal injuries.
“That was kind of scary to see there for a second,” Cal quarterback Jared Goff said. “From what I’ve heard, he’s doing all right and going to be OK.”
