Southern University wide receiver Devon Gales was seriously injured during  the Jaguars’ loss to the University of Georgia on Saturday in Athens.

Gales suffered several fractured vertebra in his neck after blocking on a kickoff return.

Gales underwent successful surgery on Sunday and continues to have movement in his upper body. He will remain in Georgia until he is released for further treatment in Baton Rouge.

Southern University has started the Devon Gales Fund to provide the Gales family with financial assistance to cover medical expenses.

Donations can be made to the Devon Gales Fund through gojagsports.com, the home for Southern Athletics.
