Lions' Zack Follett Conscious, Has Movement

Detroit Lions' linebacker Zack Follett is conscious and has movement in his limbs after a scary incident Sunday against the New York Giants.

Follett made helmet-to-helmet contact with Jason Pierre-Paul of the Giants while covering a kickoff in the fourth quarter. He laid on the field for several minutes before being strapped to a back board and carted off.

"We’ve heard from the hospital," said [Lions coach Jim] Schwartz, who did not say to which hospital Follett was taken.

"Zack Follett is getting some tests right now. We don’t have any results but he does have feeling in his extremities. He was getting some of that before he left the field. There are still a lot of things that we need to test. Let’s keep him in our prayers. I’m not sure if he’s going to travel back with the team."
