The XFL Championship Game had to be stopped in progress after photographer, Tony Morano, was hurt on the sidelines. Since that time, XFL fans have been waiting for updates on the health of the popular photojournalist.
During last night’s XFL Championship Game between the Arlington Renegades and the DC Defenders, photographer, Tony Morano sustained a scary looking injury following an unintended hit from wide receiver, Josh Hammond. Following the collision, the XFL-accredited photographer appeared to be seriously injured. He needed medical attention, therefore the game had to be stopped. He was removed from the field on a stretcher, by cart, and hurried to a nearby hospital.
News regarding the condition of Morano has been sparse, despite a public outcry for information from concerned members of the XFL fandom. Given the apparent severity of the injury, fans have been keen to hear news that the photojournalist is recovering from his ordeal.
Thankfully, due to a tweet from FOX San Antonio affiliate, Chuck Miketinac, we have now learned that Morano is “doing better” today. The photographer got the all clear following x-rays and scans but is said to be suffering from a minor concussion. A very lucky break, all things considered.
