Tallahassee, FL ( – Syracuse cornerback Julian Whigham left
Saturday’s game against Florida State in the first quarter with an apparent
chest injury.

Whigham appeared to have been injured when his own teammate collided with him
in an unsuccessful attempt to stop Rashad Greene’s 6-yard touchdown reception
late in the period. Whigham’s arm was bent at an awkward angle underneath his
chest once all three players fell to the ground in the end zone.

The sophomore was on the turf in pain for several minutes before being taken
from the field on a stretcher to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital. He is
currently undergoing tests to determine the severity of the injury.
