The Tennessee Titans coach Mike Vrabel provided an update on wide receiver Treylon Burks after he was carted off of the field late in the fourth quarter of their 20-16 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday night.

Vrabel revealed after the game that Burks was alert and had full use of his extremities. The wide receiver was later seen walking out of the locker room on his own to the team bus, thereby corroborating Vrabel’s account.

Burks went down when attempting to make a deep catch with the ball slipping out of his grasp. He landed hard out of bounds and appeared as if he was unconscious. He was treated by members of both teams’ medical staff and by the time he was loaded onto the stretcher, it appeared as if Burks could wiggle his toes.
