ST. CHARLES, Mo. (AP) - A Lindenwood University football player has been transferred to a facility in Atlanta for treatment of a spinal cord injury suffered in a game last month.
Freshman cornerback Sterling Thomas, a Union High School graduate, was hurt Oct. 27 in Lindenwood's 45-30 win over Missouri Southern.
Full details about the injury have not been disclosed. Thomas was transferred from a suburban St. Louis hospital to Shepherd Center's Spinal Cord Injury Program on Monday. The center says he will begin a rigorous rehabilitation program under the guidance of medical and rehab specialists.
