Hurricanes LB Marques Gayot released from hospital, calls neck injury 'minor setback for a major comeback'

Hurricanes sophomore linebacker Marques Gayot was released from the hospital Thursday morning, 24 hours after he collided with a teammate in practice, injured his neck and was airlifted to Ryder Trauma Center in Miami.

Gayot, who is expected to make a full recovery, then posted the following message on Twitter aimed at Hurricanes fans.

No one at UM has yet to address how long Gayot will be out of action for the Hurricanes.

UM coach Al Golden has yet to address the media this week and skipped his weekly Q&A session on the ACC Teleconference Wednesday to deal with Gayot's injury.

He was placed in an ambulance and taken to a local hospital.
