49ers End Practice Early After Donavin Newsom Knocked Unconscious
Head coach Kyle Shanahan said Newsom had feeling in his lower half, but little else was known folliwing the injury. Newsom was taken off the field by paramedics and away in an ambulance after colloding with defensive back Chanceller James.
“It’s scary anytime you’ve got a guy on the ground that long,” Kyle Shanahan said. “We have a lot of information we need to find out. The encouraging part I can say is his eyes were open. He did have feeling in his lower half and in his hands. That’s the encouraging part about it. He’s on his way to the hospital. That’s really all I know, and we’re praying for the best.”
Newsom was an undrafted free agent signing out of Missouri.
