WSU quarterback Luke Falk was knocked out of the game against the Colorado Buffaloes midway through the third quarter after his helmet collided violently with the turf on a sack.

It appeared Falk briefly lost consciousness, and after having his facemask removed by the medical staff, he was eventually placed on a board and carted off the field. He did have movement in his extremities, and Falk did his best to let everyone know he was OK:

It was the second consecutive week in which such an incident knocked Falk out of the game. Unlike last week against, UCLA, however, it does not appear there is any way Falk will be returning to this game.

WSU was leading the game 17-0 when Falk exited, and he was 27-of-35 for 199 yards and one touchdown. He was again replaced by Peyton Bender, who completed one of his first three throws before Erik Powell missed a field goal to end his first drive.

We'll update as we know more.
