It was a scary scene on The Plains on Saturday afternoon.

The Tigers, who struggled to score points early against Mercer, appear to be facing a serious injury for starting right tackle Darius James.

James was taken from the field via stretcher during the first half of the contest at Jordan-Hare Stadium, and reportedly was transported to the local hospital for further evaluation.
