CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -Houston wide receiver Patrick Edwards said Wednesday he holds no animosity toward Marshall, a day after he ran into a service cart and broke his leg in a game against the Thundering Herd.
The freshman was going after a pass from Blake Joseph at full speed in the third quarter Tuesday night when his right shin hit the metal cart in the back of the end zone. A referee immediately called for help and Edwards was carried off the field.
A Cabell Huntington Hospital spokesman said Edwards was in good condition Wednesday following surgery.
Edwards told The Associated Press from his hospital room in Huntington that he didn't see several carts that were parked against a grass embankment.
``I just saw the ball in the air and once it came down, I hit the cart and flipped over it,'' Edwards said.
He doesn't blame Marshall but said the Conference USA officiating crew should have ensured that the carts were moved away.
e field,'' Edwards said.
A Conference USA spokesman and Marshall athletic director Bob Marcum didn't immediately return telephone messages Wednesday.
The game was televised nationally and the accident has already been viewed thousands of times on the Internet - even Edwards said he saw the replay.
Edwards, Houston's leading receiver with 634 yards on 46 catches, suffered a compound fracture and had a rod inserted in his lower right leg during surgery, said Houston associate athletic director Chris Burkhalter.
A few Marshall fans visited Edwards at the hospital Wednesday.
``The doctor said I will be good, ready for next season,'' Edwards said.
