LSU freshman centerfielder Chris Sciambra is out for the season but with a prognosis of 100 percent recovery after suffering a frightening neck injury suffered in Sunday's 4-3 victory at Auburn. Sciambra has two fractures in a vertebra in his neck and a concussion after attempting a diving catch on a ball hit into the left center field gap, his father, Jay Sciambra, said. He added there was no damage to the spinal cord or any other neurological issues. The elder Sciambra said his son is resting at his Baton Rouge home and will be in a neck brace for 12 weeks, followed by a stretch of rehabilitation. But he said he feels "unbelievably fortunate" the injury wasn't much worse. "He's the most lucky kid," the elder Scimabra said. "He's in good spirits. We could be having such a different conversation today. The prognosis is for 100 percent recovery."
