Oklahoma defensive back Damond Harmon was stretchered off the field on Saturday following a tackle in the game vs. TCU.

The sophomore injured his head and neck while tackling a TCU player in the fourth quarter. He was down on the field for around 10–15 minutes as trainers attended to him on the field.

The entire crowd at Amon G. Carter Stadium went silent out of respect for Harmon. Both the Oklahoma and TCU players came onto the field as Harmon was being cared for, and the Oklahoma players took a knee for their injured teammate.

The Athletic’s Chris Vannini noted that Harmon’s arm was moving as he was taken off the field.

Harmon was “conscious and responsive” as he left the field, 247 Sports’ Parker Thune reported. As Harmon was carted off the field, the entire stadium clapped for him.

Oklahoma updated Harmon’s status on Saturday night, stating that the sophomore’s scans all came back negative and he was released from a Fort Worth hospital. He is on his way back to Norman to receive care there.

The Sooners ended up losing 55–24 to the Horned Frogs on Saturday to move to 3–2 on the season.
