CINCINNATI (AP) – Southern Methodist freshman JaBryce Taylor was hit in the head on a kickoff return and taken off the field on a stretcher Saturday, but a test found no serious injury.

Taylor was hurt during the second quarter of SMU’s 28-25 loss to Cincinnati. He stumbled and was hit in the head as he was tackled. He remained face-down on the field but moved his arms and legs.

The medical staff called for a back support, rolled him over, strapped him to a stretcher and took him to an ambulance. Coach June Jones said a CT test at a hospital was negative and Taylor was going home with the team.

Taylor is SMU’s primary punt and kickoff returner. He has caught seven passes for 127 yards.
