Broncos’ De’Vante Bausby Says He Was Paralyzed For 30 Minutes After Neck Injury (VIDEO)
De’Vante Bausby provided some scary details on the injury that knocked him out of Sunday’s 20-13 win over the Los Angeles Chargers.
The Denver Broncos cornerback was placed on a backboard in the second quarter after he took a brutal helmet-to-helmet hit with teammate Alexander Johnson. The third-year defender told reporters Tuesday he was paralyzed for 30 minutes immediately after the hit.
Bausby rejoined the team after undergoing multiple tests, but head coach Vic Fangio told reporters Monday he’ll be out indefinitely with a cervical sprain.
“[Bausby] is doing good,” Fangio said. “No timetable on his return yet. He’ll definitely miss some time. [I] don’t know if it will be the entire rest of the season or not. [With] these [injuries], the first few days and week will kind of tell the story.”
Here’s that scary hit:
Bausby has 13 combined tackles and three passes defended in five games with the Broncos.
