Treyvon Green injury: Northwestern RB taken from practice in ambulance

Scary scene in Evanston, Ill., this afternoon as Northwestern sophomore running back Treyvon Green was taken from the practice field in an ambulance after a hit to his upper body from sophomore safety Ibraheim Campbell.

Green was immobilized for precautionary reasons before being put in the ambulance, but he had feeling in all four limbs, said a team spokesperson. Coach Pat Fitzgerald and running backs coach Matt MacPherson rode in the ambulance with Green to the hospital.

Chris Emma of PurpleWildcats.com reports that the Wildcats' practice facility was cleared of all players, coaches and observers while Green was being tended to. Players gathered for a prayer before leaving, and many were visibly shaken.

Green, who rushed for 362 yards and four touchdowns in 2011, is battling for Northwestern's starting running back position.

There has been no further word on Green's condition.
