Texas Tech cornerback Bruce Jones was taken off the field of Thursday's game against Texas after suffering an apparent head injury. Texas running back Malcolm Brown was running a route, and Jones flew into the Longhorn's right knee with the side of his head.
The Red Raiders defender was helped by medical staff from both teams, loaded onto a backboard, and carted to the locker room for further treatment. Fortunately, Jones was moving his arms and legs while being treated on the field.

The Red Raiders are already down a defensive back, as Derrick Mays did not travel to Austin due to an injury. Ola Falemi replaced Jones, and was immediately targeted by the Longhorns on a trick play that led to a Longhorns touchdown.
