News Feed - January 22, 2009

John Vaughan has been released from a Boston-area hospital after a CT scan was clear, according to the George Mason athletic Web site. The Patriots senior guard suffered a concussion and collapsed in Wednesday night's game at Northeastern. He is expected to return to Fairfax on Thursday and be further evaluated by a team physician.

Vaughan, who led the Patriots with 19 points in the 58-57 loss, took a blow to the head underneath George Mason's basket late in the game. He had going for a rebound when he was inadvertently elbowed by a Northeastern player. He fell to the court, clutching his face, but then got to his feet and went down the court.

After Nkem Ojougboh's first free throw fell through the net, Vaughan crumpled to the floor, briefly losing consciousness. The game was delayed nearly 20 minutes while medical staff worked on Vaughan, who was taken out of the game in a neck brace and on a gurney.
