Jaivian Thomas is home and doing well after a frightening hit knocked him out of the Oregon game last Saturday and sent him to the hospital.

“Obviously, that was a scary moment up there. We appreciate all the help and care that he got when he was in Eugene,” Cal coach Justin Wilcox said this week when he met with reporters. “He is back home and doing well. All the tests that he’s undergone are positive and we’re communicating with him daily.”

Thomas left the field on a stretcher after he appeared to hit his head hard on the field on a first-and-goal run. That brought on a lengthy stoppage as trainers tended to Thomas. Cal offensive coordinator Jake Spavital said Thomas was unconscious at one point.

The freshman running back was taken to the hospital for testing immediately after. Wilcox said in the postgame that Thomas had feeling in his extremities and was alert and interacting with doctors at the time.

Spavital said he has been texting with Thomas throughout the week.

“He seems like he’s in good spirits and I think he’s kind of anxious to get back around his teammates,” Spavital said.

There is no timeline for Thomas’ return to the field.

“I think that’s more up to him,” Spavital said. “It’s so early in (the process). We haven’t really gotten that far. We’re just more concerned with him being healthy right now. There is no rush for him. It’s just kind of when he’s ready to roll and when he feels comfortable.”
