Ready for a little good news?
We've gotten a report that tests have come back negative on UW safety Darin Harris of Federal Way, who was injured in the second half and taken from the game by ambulance.
Harris apparently suffered a concussion, but none of the neck or spinal damage that might have been feared as he lay on the field. (Here's the complete story from our Sunday paper.)
"The outlook for Darin Harris is very good," coach Tyrone Willingham said. "There's no – that we're able to tell right now – neck injury. He should be fine from that standpoint. … Even when he was down, they were being very precautionary, and I love the manner in which our medical people work. They do a great job, and they're on the money. He was moving and saying he wanted to get back out there. We do need to send prayers to him. It was very close, but I think he'll be all right."
He is doubtful for next week, but that of course is well down the priority list is so sobering a situation.
