Chris Owusu may have to think about giving up football after suffering his fourth career concussion Saturday. The Stanford wide receiver was taken off the field in Corvallis after taking a hit to the head in the second quarter against Oregon State.
Owusu was drilled by cornerback Jordan Poyer who caused a fumble that was returned for a touchdown. The touchdown was taken away after a penalty was called on Poyer for targeting Owusu above the shoulder pads. Owusu was moved onto a stretcher after laying on the ground for several minutes. He was taken off the field in an ambulance and transported to the hospital for tests.
The senior is said to have full range of motion but he suffered his fourth concussion. Owusu was concussed against Washington State earlier this year, and he missed a few games last season after suffering a concussion against Oregon. He also was drilled by USC’s T.J. McDonald last weekend.
With all the scared Owusu has endured, he should strongly consider sitting out the rest of the season.
