PULLMAN – Oregon State quarterback Jake Luton had full movement of all extremities after taking a hard hit in the fourth quarter of Saturday’s game.

With 11:40 left, Luton scrambled upfield for 9 yards before being hit by two Cougar defenders.

After Luton crumbled to the ground, the crowd fell silent. After a 10-minute wait – players on both teams watched on bended knees – Luton was carted off the field

“That’s always scary when a guy goes down and stays down,” WSU coach Mike Leach said. “I thought he played a courageous game, and we wish him all the best.”
