University of Cincinnati quarter Gunner Kiel remains under evaluation on UC's campus after receiving a blow to the head and neck in Thursday night's game against Memphis.
A UC football spokesperson says x-rays on Kiel's neck were negative and his status for the Bearcats' next game is undetermined at this time.
Kiel, a junior, laid motionless on the Liberty Bowl field for several minutes after Memphis defensive back Chauncey Lanier made contact with Kiel's helmet. He left the field on a stretcher and was transported to a Memphis-area hospital for evaluation.
Kiel flew back with the team after the game.
He left UC's previous game against Miami after taking a hard hit. Head coach Tommy Tuberville described him as "fuzzy" after the game in Oxford, but said they diagnosed Kiel with a shoulder injury.
UC next plays Thursday October 1 against Miami (FL).
