Virginia running back Perris Jones has regained movement in all of his extremities after being injured in Thursday night’s 31-24 loss at Louisville.
Injured while being tackled after catching a pass in the third quarter, Jones was transported by ambulance to the University of Louisville Medical Center and remained there overnight.
Cavaliers coach Tony Elliott told reporters after the game that the news he received from the hospital regarding Jones’ condition was “encouraging.”
Jones caught a swing pass and was running up the field when he was hit near the Louisville sideline. He fumbled on the play, but Virginia receiver Malik Washington scooped it up and scored a go-ahead 42-yard touchdown.
Louisville’s training staff immediately offered assistance to Jones as officials and players from both teams gathered around him.
Jones’ roommate is fellow running back Mike Hollins, who survived a shooting that killed three of their teammates last November.
Monday marks the one-year anniversary of the deaths of Devin Chandler, Lavel Davis Jr. and D’Sean Perry.
