During WVU’s 38-20 loss to the Texas Longhorns on Saturday night, fans all across Mountaineer Nation held their breath as star running back C.J. Donaldson was carted off with an apparent head/neck injury. Neal Brown updated the media last night with news that Donaldson was stable and would travel back with the team from Austin.
This evening, fans were greeted with a positive message from Donaldson on Instagram regarding his health.
“I’m ok everyone. I will not be on my phone too much. Thanks for the love.”
This is certainly a positive sign from the true freshman.
Of course there’s no timetable on Donaldson’s return, and we shouldn’t expect there to be. What’s most important here is that the young and blooming star is okay and that he is in good spirits.
We can expect to hear more on the status of Donaldson during Neal Brown’s weekly press conference on Tuesday.
