Wharton sophomore QB Chase Litton, carted off the Wildcat Stadium field in the final minutes of Friday's 14-6 loss to King, has been released from a local hospital and could return to the lineup by month's end.
Litton's older brother, Josh, reported earlier today on his Wharton sports website -- thebluecrew.net -- that Litton has been released from Tampa General Hospital with "a real bad stinger with a possible concussion." He also Tweeted that Chase's doctor said he could return in three to four weeks.
'Cats offensive coordinator Craig Rainey indicated in a text message that an MRI on Litton came back negative.
Litton sustained what appeared to be a helmet-to-helmet blow that left him immobilized, and had to be taken from the field on a stretcher.
