Julian Whigham Back in Syracuse After Suffering a "Lung Contusion"

Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

Syracuse's sophomore corner Julian Whigham is back in Syracuse after suffering a serious internal injury during Saturday's loss to Florida State. On Monday night, SU Athletics gave us an update.

Syracuse University athletics released a press release on the ongoing condition of corner Julian Whigham.

"Syracuse University football student-athlete Julian Whigham is back in Syracuse where his health will continue to be monitored by the Syracuse University team physicians and medical staff."

Remember, Whigham collided with teammate Jeremi Wilkes during the first quarter of Syracuse's 59-3 loss to Florida State. Whigham was down on the field for a long period of time, before being taken off by a stretcher. He spent the night in a Tallahassee hospital.

"Whigham suffered a lung contusion and possible tearing of scar tissue from a prior surgical history for achalasia during Syracuse’s game at Florida State. His status for the remainder of the 2013 football season will be evaluated."

Whigham called it the "worst pain I felt in a long time" according to a Syracuse.com article by Michael Cohen. "I thought I was dying in the ambulance," Whigham told Cohen. "I'm good now."

Whigham was in good condition on Saturday night around 8 p.m., SU Athletics said. But, Whigham stayed overnight at the hospital as a precaution because of previous issues with his esophagus.

Fortunately, Julian is doing a lot better in only a few days. Stay tuned for future updates.
