WASHINGTON — Among the chaos, flags and fumbles during the Marion, Washington football game, there was a scary moment in the third quarter when Logan Fuller was injured during a kick return.
The junior returned the ball and for the second time in the game found himself in a violent collision. He didn’t get up from the second. But as of late Friday night, Marion head coach Tony Perkins said Fuller should be OK.
“Logan’s in for an MRI right now, so supposedly he’s going to be just fine,” Perkins said. “We’re keeping our fingers crossed.”
Jenkins also said Fuller was moving and had feeling in his limbs.
On kick-offf midway through the third quarter, Fuller collided head-on with a Washington defender. He instantly rolled on the ground in pain, then laid motionless. After a delay he was taken off the field on a stretcher.
“I think any time you have that, both sides are going to be a little bit down,” Washington head coach Randy Schrader said. “That’s kind of the reality of ‘Oh my God’ type situation. I think that kind of put that fog over the field for a while and got a little sloppy. And we just hope he’s OK. That’s the main thing. We just hope he’s OK.”
