Video here: Louisville Cardinals CB Anthony Conner breaks neck during collision - ESPN




LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Louisville coach Charlie Strong says cornerback Anthony Conner broke his neck when his head hit the knee of Rutgers receiver Mohamed Sanu but he isn't paralyzed.

Conner was carted off the field Friday night after going down on the first play of the second quarter, and team officials said a few minutes later that the senior was conscious with feeling in his extremities.

Strong said Conner was able to squeeze hands and raised his hand, which made his teammates feel he'd be OK. But the coach found out about the severity of the injury during a timeout late in Louisville's 16-14 win.

"Anthony Conner, it's so sad," Strong said. "Our prayers go out to him and his family, but he ended up breaking his neck."

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. Trainers worked on him for several minutes, strapping him to a backboard. He did move his feet and a hand as he was carted off to an ambulance where he was taken to Jewish Hospital.
