Report: Trevor Knight's Injury Diagnosed as Transient Quadriplegia

The Oklahoman is reporting, Trevor Knight suffered transient quadriplegia on the play. Knight’s condition was first reported by SoonerScoop.com.

The lingering effects of the injury will keep Knight out of at least Saturday’s game at Texas Tech but barring setbacks should be able to return soon.

Transient quadriplegia is a cervical spine injury typically caused by hyperextension of the neck. It causes burning sensations, numbness, tingling or loss of sensation on both sides of the body.

It differs from a stinger, which affects just one side of the body.

Symptoms from transient quadriplegia last anywhere from 15 minutes to 36 hours. The scariest of Knight’s symptoms appeared to go away quickly. (The Oklahoman)
