Cincinnati QB Gunner Kiel taken off field on stretcher vs. Memphis

Cincinnati quarterback Gunner Kiel was taken off the field on a stretcher Thursday night against Memphis after taking a hard hit to his upper body.

With less than four minutes remaining in the first quarter, Kiel scrambled out of the pocket and ran forward for the first down on a third and 1. As he went to slide to the ground, he took a hit to his upper body from Memphis defensive back Chauncey Lanier.

Lanier was initially called for targeting on the play, but the penalty was rescinded upon review. If upheld, the targeting call would have resulted in Lanier’s ejection.
