And down goes another Tennessee player.

In the third quarter of the Vols’ game against Texas A&M on Saturday, senior defensive tackle Danny O’Brien went down with an apparent head injury. This one was also scarier than most, as O’Brien needed to be taken off on a stretcher and carted away.

Per SEC Country’s Mike Griffith, O’Brien was moving his extremities when he was taken to hospital for further evaluation.

O’Brien went down after helmet-to-helmet contact with a Texas A&M player. He was the second Tennessee player to go down with an injury in the quarter, as backup linebacker Cortez McDowell was also hurt.

Here are some sights from the moments after O’Brien’s injury occurred:
