Indianapolis Colts tight end Brandon Williams was release from the hospital, diagnosed with a concussion after leaving the game against the Denver Broncos.

Williams was released from the hospital and was back with the team’s medical staff.

“It was a pretty scary thing … but he’s back here,” Colts’ head coach Chuck Pagano said after the Colts’ loss to Denver. “He’s doing well.”

Williams, who was stretchered off of the field during the game, was diagnosed with a head injury, but doctors did not initially believe that he had suffered an injury to his neck or spine.

“Worried about him. Worried about his family that’s watching on TV,” Colts’ tight end Jack Doyle said.

“You think about all those things because Brandon is such a great person, great teammate and great friend. It’s just hard to see, so I just hope he’ll be all right.”

“It’s a scary thing for all of us, and I’m sure it’s scary for his family as well,” Indianapolis kicker Adam Vinatieri regarding Williams.

“You hate to see anybody go off like that, teammate or the other team, obviously. I’m hoping that’s it’s more of a precautionary thing, and I’m hoping that he’s going to be OK.”

Chris Johnson Retires as Titan

Former NFL running back Chris Johnson signed a one-day contract with the Tennessee Titans so that he can retire with the team he has spent the best years, and the majority of his NFL career with.

Johnson also believes that if he was a feature back, he could still surpass 1,000 yards rushing in a complete NFL season

“Shoot, that’s not even a question” Johnson said, according to Jim Wyatt of the Tennessee Titans’ official team website . You put me in an offense where I’m the starting back, there’s no way I wouldn’t get 1,000 yards,” said Johnson. “I could still do it, but it’s time to move onto the next situation.”

“Tennessee, that’s the first organization that gave me a chance to make my dreams come true,” Johnson said. “I have so many great memories in Tennessee and was able to do so many things with the Titans. It’s an organization I always want to be considered a part of.

“I grew up in Tennessee. I went from being a kid to a grown man here. I might have grown up as a kid in (my hometown of) Orlando, but I was still a kid in Nashville when I got there. The team and the city, they’ve always shown me so much love. I have great memories from my days with the Titans, so many on the field and in the city. I’ve always loved Tennessee, and I always will because I’ve always felt so much love.”
