Notre Dame’s Torii Hunter Jr. Takes Bad Hit, Goes Limp As Dad Watches

Well, this was a scary hit.

Notre Dame senior wide receiver Torii Hunter Jr. took a hard hit to the head in the end zone during the third quarter of Sunday night’s game at Texas.

Hunter Jr., the son of former MLB All-Star Torii Hunter, initially caught the pass, which would have been a go-ahead touchdown, but he dropped the ball after taking the two hard hits. He appeared to go limp afterward, causing concern, but moved his extremities while on the ground and eventually walked off under his own power.

He was being evaluated in the locker room when Hunter Sr. and his family joined him there. Hunter Jr. did not return to the game.

Hunter Jr. had scored earlier in the game, also racking up four catches for 37 yards before he suffered the injury.
