Pair of Hawaii D-linemen released from hospital after scary injuries

There wasn’t much excitement in BYU’s 47-o win over Hawaii Friday night. There was, unfortunately, two scary moments in the first quarter.

UH Defensive tackles Geardon Hanohano and Siasau Matagiese both had to be carted off the field following scary helmet-to-helmet hits on consecutive defensive series. It was a sobering sight.

Thankfully, both have been released from the hospital after X-rays on their necks came back normal. The two were on the team flight back to Hawaii, according to the Associated Press.

There wasn’t a lot to be happy about Friday’s performance if you’re Warrior’s coach Norm Chow, who was making his return to BYU where he was a former assistant, but the fact that Hanohano and Matagiese are okay is definitely one thing to smile about.
