Robinson released from hospital

Michael Robinson

Penn State quarterback suffered concussion Saturday

Michael Robinson was able to walk out of University Hospital in Madison under his own power Sunday morning after being taken off the Camp Randall field in a stretcher Saturday night, Associated Press reported.

Robinson was sandwiched between Wisconsin defensive linemen Erasmus James and Jason Jefferson late in the first quarter; he received a vicious helmet-to-facemask hit from James and was hit on the back of the head by Jefferson. He fell hard to the turf and laid still for some minutes while paramedics immobilized him and placed him in an ambulance.

Robinson experienced "some slight paralysis" on the field, according to Penn State defensive coordinator Tom Bradley. Robinson was diagnosed with a concussion at the hospital Saturday night and was able to move his fingers and toes.
