Kentucky backup QB Luke Wright tweets good news after collapsing on sideline
During the second half of Saturday night’s game against Mizzou, Kentucky fans witnessed a scary moment, as backup QB Luke Wright collapsed on the sideline and was taken off the field on a stretcher.
The game was delayed more than five minutes and the stadium fell silent as Wright was being tended to.
Fortunately, Wright tweeted early Sunday morning that he was OK and thanked fans for keeping him in their thoughts:
All came back good. Thanks for all the prayers!

After the game, which the Wildcats won 40-34, coach Mark Stoops said the scary moment definitely shook up his team a bit (via Kentucky.com):
“Nobody likes to see that and our team was definitely a little bit shook, but once we kind of figured out what it was, at least it was better than some other things that could have been going on, I guess, without getting into it,” he said.
When Wright can return to the field remains to be seen, but the good news is that everything appears to be OK with the Kentucky player in the aftermath of Saturday’s scare.
