Ole Miss linebacker Serderius Bryant suffered a scary injury Saturday evening after making a hard tackle on Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel.

From David Brandt of The Associated Press:
LB Serderius Bryant has a concussion. Knocked out on field so doctors were cautious. He was back in meetings Sunday.— David Brandt (@davidbrandtAP) October 14, 2013
UPDATE: Sunday, Oct. 13
Hugh Kellenberger of ClarionLedger.com confirms Serderius Bryant's initial tests are positive, but that he will continue to undergo additional tests:
Early indications are that Ole Miss linebacker Serderius Bryant is suffering from a concussion.
Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze said in a text message that Bryant is undergoing more tests but that “things look good.”
Serderius Bryant's injury is something that no one wants to see, regardless of where your team allegiances fall. It's unclear whether Bryant injured his head or his neck, but it's a serious situation no matter what.
After Bryant made the tackle, Ole Miss' training staff made an immediate point to call for a stretcher and took the utmost precaution to ensure the junior linebacker's safety.
Eye on College Football did offer an encouraging note after Bryant was taken off the field:
Bryant offers a double thumbs-up as he's stretchered off the field, which is awesome.— Eye on College FBall (@EyeOnCFB) October 13, 2013
Bryant is a major part of the Rebels' defense, but his health is the only concern here. The thumbs-up is a reason for optimism, but you can never be too careful with injuries like this.
We'll continue to update as more information is released about Bryant's condition.
