California tailback Jahvid Best suffered a concussion and was taken to the emergency room after he leapt into the air, flipped over a defender and lost consciousness after landing on the back of his head in the end zone.

Coach Jeff Tedford has confirmed that initial test have come back normal.
Best had movement in his extremities, spokesman Herb Benenson said. Benenson also stated that a preliminary evaluation showed Best had suffered concussion.

More tests will be completed before a final diagnosis willbe announced by the school. Tedford didn’t know whether Best would be kept in the hospital over night.
Best’s helmet came off on impact. He vaulted into the air over the Safety’s Cameron Collins on the 7-yard touchdown run.

Best’s jersey was removed and he was wearing an oxygen mask when carted out of the stadium. Benenson said Best was taken to an emergency room for observation and examination.
Best missed Tuesday and Wednesday’s practice sessions with a slight concussion sustained in the team’s 23-21 win at Arizona State last Saturday, but participated in full during Thursday’s workout. The concussion wasn’t diagnosed right away.

Here is a video i found of the incident, terrifying (or exciting) stuff!
