McLeod left game after first-quarter hit, did not return

Junior strong safety Rodney McLeod walked off the field under his own power after making a tackle with just more than three minutes remaining in the first quarter Saturday against Florida State. He sat out the remainder of the game. Coach Mike London said afterward he had no update on McLeod's status.

"He did take a pretty good shot there, but he was up on the sideline talking and everything like that."

On first and 10 from the Florida State 45 yard-line, the Seminoles handed the ball off to tailback Chris Thompson. McLeod made the initial hit on Thompson, but snapped his neck to the left against Thompson's body in the process. McLeod lay on the field and received medical attention as concerned teammates looked on. He eventually got up and walked to the sideline where team doctors continued their examinations.

McLeod made his first start of the season Saturday and was credited with four tackles before his departure. He sat out the first two games with a knee injury and played sparingly during a Sept. 25 win over Virginia Military Institute.
