Lions Zack Follett Shows No Evidence Of Spinal Fracture

More good news on Detroit Lions’ linebacker Zack Follett, who was carted off the field on a back board Sunday after colliding helmet-to-helmet with Jason Pierre-Paul of the New York Giants.

Follett’s prognosis was more promising after the Lions medical staff announced there was no evidence of a fracture of the cervical spine and that Follett had movement in all four extremities.

Follett is hospitalized at Hackensack University Medical Center, where he was scheduled to remain overnight while undergoing extensive tests and evaluations.

"There are still a lot of other things that we need to test and we need to see with him, so let’s keep him in our prayers," Lions coach Jim Schwartz told reporters after the game.
