A player practicing at a football camp at Millard South High School field suffered what could have been a potentially serious injury Wednesday morning.

The 14-year-old sustained a neck bruise, authorities said, and a rescue squad was dispatched to the scene.

The teen was taken in serious condition to Children's Hospital & Medical Center, according to rescue squad personnel at the scene.

According to a police report, the teen's father said his son "tucked his head'' during a play at practice. The 49-year-old father said X-rays showed nothing was broken or damaged in his son's neck. 

The teen was treated at the hospital and later released, the report said, and he was expected to make a full recovery.

Millard South is situated on the south side of Q Street just west of 144th Street.
