FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — Darius James was pretty sure he was OK, even though he was sprawled face-first in the grass and his neck wouldn't budge.
He wiggled his fingers and toes and had feeling in his arms and legs, giving the big offensive lineman some reassurance that he wasn't paralyzed.
AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — Auburn right tackle Darius James was expected to make a full recovery after being carted off the field on a stretcher during the second quarter Saturday against Mercer.
On a routine, 3-yard run by Kamryn Pettway , James went down and teammate Mike Horton landed on his back. The 324-pound senior remained sprawled out on the turf, face down and showing no movement while being treated.
