    Leonard Johnson Want Fans to Know He is Okay

    This is strait from Iowa State University Athletics Official Web Site - www.CYCLONES.com - The home of Iowa State Cyclone Sports

    AMES, Iowa -- The first thing Iowa State defensive back Leonard Johnson wants Cyclone fans to know is that he is okay.

    "Our fans have been really supportive of me through the last four years and I appreciate their concern on my behalf," Johnson said.

    Johnson was taken from the Jack Trice Stadium field in the fourth quarter of Saturday night's game against Texas after a collision with a Longhorn player and an ensuing helmet-on-helmet hit with a teammate at the end of the play. Johnson was momentarily stunned.

    "I was trying to avoid getting blocked and then it happened so fast," Johnson said. "I was lying on the ground. The medical staff and trainers were right there. I want to thank them for being so careful."

    Johnson said the left side of his body was tingling. He was taken to Mary Greeley Hospital. Johnson was released after 90 minutes of observation and tests.

    "At this point it is just a neck strain," Johnson said.

    Johnson was able to move all of extremities on the field even before he was taken out of Jack Trice Stadium.

    "I was talking to (Associate Athletics Director for Athletics Training) Mark Coberley, my mom, coach and my friends and they kept me relaxed," Johnson stated.

    Johnson attended practice Sunday and spoke with media as he was set to eat dinner with his teammates. The main thing he wants people to know is that he is okay. That is what counts.

    Yes, that is great to hear. His presence on the team is very important, but far more important is his health as an individual, and that was a pretty scary series of hits. Very glad he is ok.

    Glad to hear. First and foremost hopefully he has a speedy recovery with his neck and all. Last, I hope he can play this weekend. We are going to need someone to guard Kendall Wright. Well try anyways.

    Re: Leonard Johnson Want Fans to Know He is Okay

    Great news on LJ. I'm so glad he's okay and that he'll continue being an asset to this team.

    The lesson to learn... watch out for those "helmet to helmet's"... and no more helmet taps to the opponents after a play is over!

    I was waiting for backhand from one of you. Looks like it didn't take long.

    Great to hear. My heart just sank watching a senior with NFL potential, who has been a great Cyclone, get strapped to one of those boards.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Looks like the "I want sympathy" theme is working.
