Bellarmine's Daniel Ramser Released From Hospital Following Injury in Louisville Game

Bellarmine guard Daniel Ramser  has been released from the hospital following a scary injury in last night's exhibition game at Louisville. 

Ramser was nailed in the temple by an inadvertent elbow. He was unconscious for a few moments.

Here is an update from BU:

LOUISVILLE, Ky.-Bellarmine sophomore guard Daniel Ramser is doing relatively well today after suffering a blow to the head in last night's Bellarmine-Louisville exhibition game at the KFC Yum! Center.

In the second half of the game, an inadvertent elbow to the temple knocked Ramser unconscious for a few moments. As a precaution, he was wheeled off in a stretcher and taken to Norton Healthcare Pavilion Hospital for further evaluation.

Ramser, who was released from the hospital Tuesday morning, has been diagnosed with a concussion.

Bellarmine Head Athletic Trainer Brad Bluestone said, "The medical team is calling it a concussion. Under the circumstances, he's doing as well as could be expected."

Ramser's return to team activities is not yet determined. "All concussions are different, and we have very specific protocols to follow, so there really isn't a timetable yet for his return," Bluestone said.

"The outpouring of concern for Daniel from all areas of the Louisville and Bellarmine communities has been overwhelming and appreciated," said Bellarmine Men's Basketball Coach Scott Davenport. "We're all very thankful that this scary situation turned out as well as could be hoped for."
