Trey Burke injury: Michigan guard returns after hard fall


Michigan star guard Trey Burke hit the floor hard and was taken to the locker room to undergo tests.

It had already been a tough night for Michigan guard Trey Burke, but things got scary when he went down hard after going for a rebound in the Wolverines' second-round NCAA Tournament game against South Dakota State.

Burke stayed on the ground as CBS went to a media timeout, and was eventually led into the locker room to undergo tests for a concussion. Here's a look at his fall:


Thankfully, just moments later, he returned to the floor and re-entered the game.

CBS's Rachel Nichols reported on air that while it was initially feared Burke had hit his head, the guard actually fell on his "backside." Michigan was also concerned about a possible elbow injury, but Burke appears to be OK.

Before the injury, Burke had struggled mightily to get going. Midway through the second half, he is shooting just 1-of-10 and has four points. To make up for it, he has dished out seven assists to get his teammates going. With under eight minutes to play, Michigan leads, 57-45.
