On Saturday against Ohio State, Nebraska quarterback Tommy Armstrong Jr. was knocked unconscious in a terrifying scene. The medical staff cut off Armstrong’s jersey and pads before loading him onto a backboard and transporting him to the local hospital for further evaluation.
It was a scary scene and there was obvious concern on the face of everyone watching.
But then there was a positive moment.
Armstrong gave a thumbs up to the crowd, but it was what happened when he came back to the stadium in his hospital scrubs and ran onto the field to the roar of the crowd.
Best sight of the night.
So glad you're OK, @Tommy_Gun4.

Shortly after the game, Armstrong then took to Twitter to provide a further update on his status, saying “everything is good.” Of course, the quarterback will still likely go through concussion protocol throughout the week.
Thank you all for the prayers… everything is good and I'm glad to be back with my team. Also thank you @OhioStateFB and the fans.
