San Jose State cornerback Bene Benwikere suffered a frightening injury on Friday night, as he was knocked out and forced to be taken off the field on a stretcher in the third quarter against Utah State. 

Sports Illustrated's Stewart Mandel provided the scary news but followed it up with a far more positive update:

Really, really bad injury in the SJSU game. Bene Benwikere knocked out, being prepped for stretcher. Team out on the field.

Good sight: Benwikere's eyes open, waving to the crowd as he's being carted off.

Benwikere was released from the hospital to return home and was tweeting on Saturday.
