When Collins Hill star receiver/defensive back Travis Hunter went down in the first quarter Friday against Peachtree Ridge, Twitter went ablaze with fears that the injury appeared season-ending.

Those fears ramped up when Hunter tweeted a picture of himself in the back of an ambulance.

But early Saturday, si.com reported that Hunter's ankle injury won't require surgery, and that he's expected to miss four to six weeks. However, the report speculates that he won't return to the field this season.

"We don't think it's a season-ending thing," Collins Hill coach Lenny Gregory told the Gwinnett Daily Post. "We're praying for good news, obviously, and I think, from everything we're hearing, he's going to be just fine."

Hunter (featured photo by Jamie Spaar) has committed to play for Florida State next season, and he expects to play on both sides of the ball.

Collins Hill went on to beat Peachtree Ridge 63-0 on Friday night.
