Former Pitt DE John Morgan III Carted Off Field During Arkansas Game



Sixth-year Arkansas Razorbacks defensive end John Morgan III, who spent the first five years of his collegiate career at Pitt, was carted off the field and transported to a Dallas area hospital for precautionary reasons during the fourth quarter of Arkansas’ 34-22 loss to Texas A&M on Saturday.

After making minimal contact during a play, Morgan collapsed on the field, remaining down for close to five minutes as medical staff attended him. 

SEC Network and ESPN Radio host Dari Nowkhah reported during the broadcast that John Morgan was blinking and talking as the medical team loaded him onto the stretcher. While the mechanism of Morgan’s injury is unclear, reporters on the game broadcast said Morgan reported neck pain following the play.

Morgan, a fan favorite during his time in Pittsburgh, has two sacks in four games for the Razorbacks this year. He racked up 14.5 in 72 career games for the Panthers, largely as a rotational player, before leaving town to make room for the team’s young stars.

John Morgan’s injury was from a hard hit into his helmet by the crown of the helmet from the opposing player. The hit twisted his head & about took his head off.
