Some very, very good news for the California Bears: safety Avery Sebastian was released from the hospital Tuesday morning, the Associated Press reported.

Sebastian was hospitalized overnight following a hard scrimmage collision that appeared to leave him immobilized for more than 15 minutes. Sebastian was taken from the Bears' practice to Oakland's Highland General Hospital Monday night after the collision.

The school issued a statement late Monday that said Sebastian had movement in his extremities and would be released from the hospital soon.

Sebastian, the starting strong safety for the Golden Bears, hit running back Jeffrey Coprich on a run up the middle and immediately went down, according to reports out of Cal's scrimmage.

A junior from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Sebastian thanked "everyone for their positive thoughts and prayers" in the school statement.
