Tennessee State University football player Christion Abercrombie was released from an Atlanta rehabilitation center Thursday after suffering from an unknown brain injury on the sidelines of a game last season. 

Today was my last day at the Shepherd center thank you, Jesus πŸ™πŸΎπŸ™πŸΎπŸ™πŸΎ, Abercrombie tweeted Thursday. Tweeting later, God is amazing.

Abercrombie was injured on a play during TSU’s game against Vanderbilt on Sept. 29. He was rushed to the hospital and had to have emergency brain surgery.

Christion received treatment at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville before he was taken to the Shepherd Center in Georgia, where his family lives, in October. 

He has spent months recovering, even undergoing brain surgery earlier this year. According to his mother Staci, he had to relearn basic things like speaking, walking and telling time. 

His family previously told News 2 they are leaning on their faith as their son recovers.  

You could say, as Christion has in his tweets, that their prayers have been answered — he’s made remarkable strides toward recovery in the last six months. 

β€œChristion is fighting,” his mother, Staci said. β€œSo, therefore as a family, we’re fighting. We’re supporting him. We’re standing strong in our faith.”
