Fort Collins, Colo. (AP) A four-year-old boy is recovering from a deep cut to his head after Colorado State wide receiver George Hill collided with him during CSU's spring game.
Caden Thomas got a signed CSU football and a call from coach Sonny Lubick Sunday after the accident a day earlier.
Hill was catching a touchdown pass Saturday when his momentum carried him into Caden on the sidelines. Caden's father, Mike Thomas, says Caden was among several kids playing on the sidelines as part of a kids' festival at Hughes stadium.
The boy had surgery to stitch up the cut. The Fort Collins Coloradoan reports that tests showed no skull fracture or other trauma, and he was released from the hospital Saturday night.
