USF punt returner injured making tackle

South Florida punt returner Terrence Mitchell was carted off the

field after being injured while making a tackle early in the fourth

quarter of the 18th-ranked Bulls’ game against UTEP on Saturday

night.

Mitchell launched himself with head lowered and appeared to hit

UTEP’s Ian Campbell with his shoulder, knocking the UTEP punter out

of bounds at the end of a 19-yard run on a fake punt play.

Mitchell remained on the ground for several minutes while

receiving medical attention, then was carted off the field. There

was no immediate word on the nature or severity of the injury.
