ATHENS — Devon Gales, a receiver at Southern University, was at Athens Regional Hospital on Saturday evening after sustaining a spinal injury during his team’s game at Georgia.
Gales was injured at the end of a kickoff return in the second half. He remained on the ground motionless for about 10 minutes, and was taken off on a stretcher.
The school released a statement asking “for your continued prayers for Devon and the entire Gales family during this difficult time.”
Gales is a redshirt sophomore from Baton Rouge, La.
