Jaguars’ Mathers Strapped To Board, Carried Off Field

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Jacksonville Jaguars running back I’Tavius Mathers was strapped to a board and carried off the practice field Tuesday after experiencing “neurological symptoms.”

Mathers collided with defenders during training camp drills. He raised both arms as trainers removed his jersey. He was taken to a hospital for further evaluation, and the Jaguars say he was conscious during the move.

Mathers is a 5-foot-11, 203-pound rookie from Murfreesboro, Tennessee. He spent three years at Mississippi before transferring to Middle Tennessee State for the 2016 season. He ran for 1,561 yards and 17 touchdowns as a senior last year, averaging more than 120 yards a game.
