JACK­SONVILLE, Fla. — Jack­sonville Jaguars run­ning back I’Tav­ius Mathers was strapped to a board and car­ried off the prac­tice field Tues­day after ex­pe­ri­enc­ing “neu­ro­log­i­cal symp­toms.”

Mathers col­lided with de­fend­ers dur­ing train­ing camp drills. He raised both arms as train­ers re­moved his jer­sey. He was taken to a hos­pi­tal for fur­ther eval­u­a­tion, and the Jaguars said he was con­scious dur­ing the move.

Mathers is a 5-11, 203-pound rookie from Murfrees­boro, Tenn. He spent three years at Mis­sis­sippi be­fore trans­fer­ring to Mid­dle Ten­nessee for the 2016 sea­son. He ran for 1,561 yards and 17 touch­downs as a se­nior last year, av­er­ag­ing more than 120 yards a game.
