Reising appears to be OK

First of all, I apologize for the lack of blog posts on Saturday but internet at Harvard Stadium was a bit on the unpredictable side. I struggled enough posting updates on twitter, often times needing to hit the send button five or six times.

The biggest news was the injury to senior linebacker Jesse Reising after a vicious collision with Harvard running back Gino Gordon. Reising was taken from the field on a stretcher but was able to communicate with his teammates before being taken to a local hospital.

"My understanding is that he is fine," Yale coach Tom Williams said. "It is a precautionary measure to take him off the field on the stretcher. When he left the field, he had feeling in all of his extremeties so that is all I know at this point."

Reising was penalized for a head to head hit on Gordon on what proved to be the game-winning score in Harvard's 28-21 victory.

UPDATED AT 5:30: Just heard that Reising, who was taken to Beth Israel Medical Center, is about to be released after being checked out.

There will be more on The Game either tonight or tomorrow.
