Horrible news out of Ole Miss ... where a freshman tight end was airlifted to a hospital after suffering a realty bad injury during Monday practice that left him motionless.
The player is DaMarcus Thomas -- an 18-year-old true freshman from Alabama, who was a 4-star recruit.
Ole Miss head coach Lane Kiffin initially told the media Thomas took a hit during practice and hasn't moved since. A helicopter was immediately called to the field to airlift him to a nearby hospital.
"He never moved and he hasn't," Kiffin said ... "There's no feeling in his entire body. We've informed the family."
Kiffin continued, "I don't know if I've seen anything as hard or like that, personally."
There are reports Thomas was "showing some movement" before being placed in the helicopter -- let's hope that's true.
