Maryland cornerback Antwaine Richardson lay motionless near a sideline late in the third quarter of Saturday's game against No. 23 Texas before he was carted off the field on a stretcher.
Maryland later announced that Richardson was alert at a hospital and was awake, alert and moving, according to Fox Sports 1.

Richardson, a sophomore from Delray Beach, Fla, attempted to shed a block and make a tackle as Texas wide receiver Lil'Jordan Humphrey collided with Richardson. The game was delayed for several minutes as medical medical personnel tended to Richardson.
On Maryland’s next offensive possession, starting quarterback Tyrrell Pigrome had to be helped off the field after twisting his knee on a run. Pigrome was 9 of 12 passing for 175 yards and two touchdowns and ran 11 times for 64 yards and a touchdown. He was replaced by freshman Kasim Hill.
