Davis gave thumbs-up on stretcher
Apollos team reporter Tom Alexander reported that Davis gave a thumbs-up as he was stretchered off the field. Alexander also noted that Okine “looked wobbly” as he walked off the field.
The team did not provide an update to Davis’ status other than to note that he suffered an “apparent neck injury.”
