Boston College WR Ryan O'Keefe discharged from hospital, back on campus
Boston College wide receiver Ryan O’Keefe was taken to Mass General Hospital Saturday night after suffering a neck injury in the team’s 27-24 win over Virginia.
On Sunday, the school shared that O’Keefe had already been discharged from the hospital and was back on campus. The program said he underwent tests and observation while in the care of MGH. It’s unclear what exactly his timeline will be for a return to the football field, but obviously the main concern is that he’s out of the hospital and seemingly doing better.
BC medical staff moved quickly to immobilize and transport O’Keefe to MGH, where he underwent tests and observation on Saturday night. (2/2)

O’Keefe received medical attention for several minutes before being carted off the field Saturday night. He was, however, able to give a ‘thumbs up’ on his way out.
Here’s video of the scene:
