GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Florida receiver Latroy Pittman has been released from the hospital following a frightening collision against LSU.
The team says Pittman was released Saturday night and “everything checked out.”
A 6-foot junior from Citra, Pittman was hurt on Florida’s final play in the 30-27 loss. Jeff Driskel tried to hit Pittman on a slant pattern, but Pittman slammed into a defender.
Pittman rolled over before trainers got to his side and was eventually strapped to a backboard and carted off Florida Field. Pittman was moving his arms and hands as he left the field and gave a thumbs-up to cheering fans.
Rickey Jefferson tipped the ball and returned it 23 yards, setting up Colby Delahoussaye’s 50-yard, game-winning field goal with 3 seconds remaining.
