USA TODAY Sports

Collins had movement in arms and legs after suffering apparent head injury.

South Florida guard Anthony Collins left Saturday's game against George Mason on a stretcher after suffering an apparent head injury. With eight minutes left to play, the sophomore was swiping at a loose ball when he was struck in the forehead by the knee of George Mason guard Sherrod Wright. Collins fell to the floor motionless, and appeared dazed when he attempted to get up. Paramedics immobilized Collins' neck and head and took him off the court. Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times indicates Collins had movement in his arms and legs as he was taken from the court.

Auman has since reported that Collins is being checked out at a local hospital with neck pain.

Deadspin has video of the incident.
