Kansas' Neal, Stowers taken to hospital

WACO, Texas (AP) Kansas cornerback Derrick Neal and defensive lineman Keon Stowers were taken to a hospital for evaluation after getting injured in the first half against No. 12 Baylor on Saturday.

Stowers had his head immobilized on a stretcher after a play in the second quarter. He flashed a thumbs-up sign as the cart took him off the field.

Neal's head collided with the knee of Baylor's Devin Chafin when he was covering a kickoff in the first quarter. Neal was placed in a neck brace before walking to the cart.

A Kansas athletic spokesman said Stowers was able to move his extremities. There were no other specifics on the players' injuries.
