VIDEO: Aggie football lightens mood in practice

The New Mexico State football team broke out in a game of dodgeball Tuesday, in part to lighten the mood following cornerback Miles Washington's neck injury this past weekend during spring practice.

"We've all had a tough week here. Players, coaches, everybody," said head coach Doug Martin said. "I wanted to ease the players back into practice and I also wanted them to come out here and have some fun. Be able to laugh and smile a little bit."

Washington's recovering from surgery at University Medical Center in El Paso. It's believed he suffered a cervical fracture, and his condition following the injury — he could talk and move his arms, although had no movement in his lower extremities — remains the same.
