Most of you have seen the play several times: Jake Locker heading to the sideline, turning up to try to get a first down, getting hit by Oregon State safety Al Afalava, then staying down on the Reser Stadium turf.
Here's how it played out from Locker's point of view:
"I couldn't find anything open, so I was trying to scramble and I knew I needed 4 or 5 more yards. I could have run out of bounds, but I tried to get the extra yards and I just kind of remember colliding with the guy, and then I went down and I tried to push myself up and I just kind of rolled over onto my left side. I couldn't move my left arm and that's when it scared me a little bit. I felt a little pinch in the back of my neck. That's what I worried a little bit. Once I was able to move my arm, then I felt better about it. I still had the pain in my arm, but by then I was on the stretcher and on the ambulance."
By the way, Locker said he does not believe the hit was dirty or intentional:
Never miss a local story.
"I've seen it," he said. "We did hit helmet to helmet, but I don't think he had any intention of leading with his helmet, trying to take me out, I don't think he had any intention of that. We'd seen on film all week that he played hard and he hit guys, and I thinkthat's all he was trying to do, make a big hit. It's football and that kind of stuff happens."
Locker also said that Afalava approached him after the game and was "cool."
