Thoughts And Prayers To Zack Follett

As you probably know, Zack Follett suffered a helmet-to-helmet hit during today's game against the Giants and had to be taken off the field on a stretcher. It's unclear what kind of injury Follett suffered, but the Lions did provide an update by saying that he was transported to a local hospital and is conscious and has feeling and movement.

I'm sure we will get a more concrete update later, but for now I just want to say that my thoughts and prayers go out to Follett. He is a good guy, so here's to a full and speedy recovery.

UPDATE: Jim Schwartz said after the game that there is "no sign" of a spinal fracture for Follett. Also, Follett has movement in all four of his extremities and will stay in New Jersey for additional tests.
