Rigg is day-to-day with the concussion. He said he still has headaches and feels a fog roll in from time to time, but is "pretty good, for the most part."
Coach Dana Holgorsen hasn't committed to playing or sidelining Rigg Saturday.
The Mountaineers (1-1) play Georgia State (0-2) at noon at Mountaineer Field. The game will be televised by ROOT Sports.
This has happened to Rigg before. He was a freshman at Bergen (N.J) Catholic when he was carted off the field after a similar play. Maybe that's why he played it so cool on the backboard Saturday.
"I knew I wasn't paralyzed when I woke up," he said. "They were doing tests. I could move my fingers and move my toes. I knew I had full function and movement. I was just really out of it."
Rigg suffered a concussion on the play, and as odd as it sounds, it was just a concussion. The immediate concern is a neck or spine injury. It seemed likely Rigg would be staying in a local hospital overnight, and the concerned coaches and teammates boarded the plane that would take them back home with that on their minds.
They were texting Rigg, asking him how he was doing, letting him know they were thinking of him, wondering when he'd be back with the team.
And then Rigg, cleared by doctors, boarded the plane.
"It was a crazy feeling," Rigg said.
He met Holgorsen first and heard some cheers from teammates before the reunion with Joseph.
"He was the first guy to really say something to me," Rigg said. "When he saw me, he asked me if I was all right. I saw he was a little uncomfortable with it, but he knew I had not problem with it. It's part of the game and it's unfortunate it happened."
