Minnesota WR McDonald hospitalized
By Adam Rittenberg
Minnesota freshman wide receiver Andre McDonald has been hospitalized Thursday and is undergoing tests, the team confirmed.
McDonald, a heralded incoming recruit from Minnetonka, Minn., played in the Gophers' season opener at UNLV but missed a Week 2 matchup with New Hampshire with a knee infection. He returned to practice last week but didn't play against Western Michigan.
McDonald told the Minnesota Daily, the student newspaper, on Thursday afternoon that he had "a little problem" with his heart.
There's no more information available at this time, but we're obviously hoping for the best and will post any updates.
