Cincinnati's Kiel awake, moving limbs after being stretchered off with neck injury
After calling his own number, Kiel was hammered mid-slide by Tigers defensive back Chauncey Lanier, who was initially ejected for targeting before referees overturned the call upon video review.
In a chilling scene, Kiel lay on his back motionless as training staff lifted him onto a stretcher. According to ESPN's live broadcast, Kiel was able to respond to staffers as well as move his toes.
While Cincinnati did not offer any additional update on Kiel's condition following the 53-46 loss, he was able to join the rest of his team for the plane ride back home.
Kiel left last week's game against Miami (OH) with a head injury, but was cleared by Cincinnati medical staff to play Thursday.
The redshirt junior's first head injury dates back to Dec. 27 of last season, when he was forced from a game against Virginia Tech.
