AMES, Iowa (AP) -- Iowa State cornerback Leonard Johnson was hospitalized Saturday night after helmet-to-helmet collisions with a pair of teammates.

Johnson collided with linebacker Jake Knott and defensive lineman Stephen Ruempolhamer while finishing off a tackle in the fourth quarter and Iowa State down 34-7 to No. 17 Texas.

Johnson landed face down on the turf. He was flipped over, placed on a backboard and taken away by medical personnel. He waved to the crowd as he left, drawing cheers.

Iowa State coach Paul Rhoads says Johnson had movement in his extremities but no further information on Johnson's conditions.

Johnson, a senior from Clearwater, Fla., was a second-team All-Big 12 pick in 2010.

The Cyclones fell to the Longhorns 37-14 for their first loss of the season.
