Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo announced during his press conference Friday that sophomore slot back Marcus Curry has been hospitalized with an undisclosed illness.

Curry was the starting slot back heading into fall camp.

"He is in the hospital," Niumatalolo said. "He got sick and they aren't sure what the deal is. He has pneumonia and some type of virus. We hope he gets back next week."

According to the Annapolis Capital, Curry attended the team's FanFest on Monday, but fell ill later and was admitted to the hospital on Tuesday.
