NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Injured Tennessee State University football player Christion Abercrombie continues making progress after being transferred to an Atlanta hospital, his mother said.
Christion’s mother, Staci Abercrombie, tweeted that “God is working a miracle.” She said Christion is now able to wave his hand, tell time and even gave her a hug when prompted.
God is working a miracle right in this moment. Christion is able to wave his hand, tell time, mumble names and the word yes. (when asked)he also gave a hug. It started when his dad heard something, and said “Can you talk”, he whispered YES! Blessings on Blessings🙏❗️— Staci Abercrombie (@smabercrombie) October 22, 2018
The Tigers player collapsed on the sideline during the TSU-Vanderbilt game on September 29.
