Report: Hunter Knighton in hospital
"Our thoughts and prayers are with Hunter Knighton and his family at this time, though we are encouraged by the prognosis," the UM athletic department said in a statement released Tuesday night. "We look forward to his return to normal activities as soon as his health permits.
"Out of respect for the privacy of those involved, UM will have no further comment at this time."
The Herald, citing sources, reported that Knighton, a redshirt freshman from Pottstown, Pa., who missed the entire 2013 season after having shoulder surgery, was still unconscious Tuesday and that his parents were at the hospital.
