Avery Sebastian injured, taken to hospital, released

Ed Szczepanski-US PRESSWIRE

Tuesday Morning Update: Avery Sebastian has left the hospital.

Update: A release from Cal Athletics does not provide updated injury information, but does seem to indicate that Sebastian will be okay.

Cal football player Avery Sebastian is resting at Highland Hospital following an injury that occurred during the Golden Bears’ practice Monday. The junior safety, who was transported by ambulance, has movement in all his extremities and is expected to be released soon.

"I want to thank everyone for their positive thoughts and prayers," Sebastian said.

Lindsay managed to see Avery in person at the hospital.

A scary moment today at Cal's scrimmage - while rushing in at full speed to tackle running back Jeffrey Coprich, safety Avery Sebastian seriously injured himself, and laid on the field motionless for close to 20 minutes. An ambulance had to be called for him, which just left the field at the time of this post. Coach Dykes called an end the team to the north end zone for a meeting, and then ended practice early.

The good news is that he was moving and breathing, according to those on the field:

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the junior. Leave yours here too.
