ASU Cornerback Osahon Irabor Shaken Up Against Utah

On the final play of the first quarter against the Utah Utes, ASU cornerback Osahon Irabor was shaken up after making the tackle.

Utah ran a reverse, and Irabor was the only player around to make a tackle. He dove headfirst, leading with his helmet to take out the Utes player at the legs.

Irabor stayed down in what appeared to be a preventative measure. After he stood up, it was clear that he was in pain. It could be a minor issue, such as a bad stinger. Neck injuries, even small ones, have a way of manifesting themselves in the future.

The ASU secondary is already depleted, and losing Irabor for even a few possessions could be a bad thing. Fortunately, on the next play of the game, Irabor's replacement, Alden Darby, intercepted a Jon Hays pass to give the Devils the ball at their own 15 yard line.
