De\'Vante Bausby, who was taken off the field Sunday on a backboard after colliding with a teammate, says he \"couldn\'t move\'\' for 30 minutes after the hit.

The Denver Broncos cornerback hopes to return to the field soon.

\"Strengthen my [neck] muscles again and I\'ll be good to go,\'\' Bausby said.

He was asked if he was nervous or afraid after the incident.

\"Little bit. ... I was never unconscious,\" he said.\"I just couldn\'t move, but I was still talking and everything. The doc, the neurologist said I was going to be fine and I just trusted that, and after about 30 minutes I was able to wiggle my toes and after a couple hours I was able to regain full mobility, so I was straight, I was fine. ... They said I was paralyzed for 30 minutes; after 30 minutes I could wiggle my toes and after two hours I could move everything else.\"
