Cedric Cooks, who was injured in John Essex High School’s game against Autaugaville last night, is at home and resting after the doctors released him around 6 a.m. Saturday.

Head coach Jerome Antone said that a MRI and a CT scan were done on Cooks, and both came back negative.

“Cedric is a very blessed child,” Antone said. “It was not looking good last night.”
