Hudson WR Jamie Hamby has been released from the hospital following a scary injury Thursday night during a spring football jamboree at Anclote, Cobras coach Mark Kantor said.
Hamby took a hard hit during a kickoff return with 2:30 left in the first quarter of a game that was ultimately delayed because of lightning.
Emergency officials transported him to a hospital in an ambulance because he didn’t have much feeling in his lower extremities, Kantor said. Hamby was alert following the hit.
Hamby underwent two MRIs, which came back negative. Doctors diagnosed him with a bruised spine, and Hamby walked out of the hospital under his own power Friday afternoon, Kantor said.
It’s not clear when Hamby could resume his football career.
“It’s all up to him, his body, his parents and of course the doctors,” Kantor said.
