Utah State coach Andersen has neck injury

Utah State football coach Gary Andersen injured neck in a fall at his home, but plans on being on the sideline against BYU on Friday night.

Anderson got hurt Monday morning and is recovering.

“Gary is a very fit and well-conditioned individual with a low resting heart rate and low resting blood pressure. He simply got up too quickly and fell, injuring his neck, which from the wear and tear on his neck from his football days made it a more worrisome injury. His prognosis is good, and he will be fine,” team doctor Trek Lyons said.

Andersen was released from Logan Regional Hospital Emergency Room later Monday morning and spent the afternoon resting at his home, before making an appearance at the Aggies' practice. According to Lyons, Andersen will wear a neck brace as a precaution.
