LSU DB Sevyn Banks taken off on stretcher after suffering scary injury on opening kickoff




AUBURN, Ala - LSU cornerback Sevyn Banks suffered a serious injury on the opening kickoff against Auburn on Saturday.

Banks went in to make a tackle headfirst on the opening kick and did not move after making contact with Auburn kick returner Keionte Scott.

After the hit, Banks was loaded onto a stretcher. LSU was handed a 15-yard penalty after the play after a video review determined that Banks' hit was worthy of a targeting infringement.

According to the ESPN broadcast, Banks was responsive as he was being lifted onto the medical cart. He is also being sent to East Alabama Medical Center. ESPN later reported that Banks was conscious and had movement in his extremities.

Saturday was Banks' second appearance for LSU this season after debuting in last week's game against New Mexico.
