Westwood coaches and trainers show grave concern as junior defensive back Mark “MJ” Mickens is carted off the field Friday after being injured during the Redhawks’ home game against Clover. Mickens suffered a neck injury, according to a statement issued by Richland 2 Tuesday, and underwent surgery earlier this week. The District said Mickens was in stable condition as of Tuesday morning.

“Our team, Westwood High and our entire district continue to keep MJ and his family in our thoughts and prayers,” Westwood head coach Rodney Summers said. “We will continue to support MJ and his family throughout his recovery process.”

The family is posting updates on his condition via Twitter @pausetive1.
