LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -Kansas cornerback Kendrick Harper was released from the hospital Sunday, a day after being taken from Memorial Stadium on a stretcher with an apparent neck injury.
``He underwent a battery of tests and everything seems to be fine and he feels a lot better,'' Kansas coach Mark Mangino said in a statement Sunday. ``I am glad he is doing well, and that is the main thing. We will discuss football stuff when he comes over.''
Harper, a senior, was injured in the first quarter of No. 13 Kansas' 29-0 win over Louisiana Tech on Saturday when he lowered his head to tackle receiver Phillip Livas. Harper's head snapped back after hitting Livas' shoulder, but he was able to walk to the sideline and sit on the bench.
Medical personnel checked on Harper for several minutes before lifting him to a stretcher and immobilizing his head. He appeared to be moving his arms as he was wheeled outside the stadium.
