CSU Football Player Hospitalized After Practice

By  | 

FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) - A Colorado State football player taken to the hospital with heat-related symptoms is expected to be released soon.

Sophomore Eugene Daniels was taken by ambulance to the hospital at about 5:30 p.m. Thursday. Colorado state athletics department spokesman Zak Gilbert says the school's medical staff took "all the necessary precautions."

He says Daniels was in good condition Friday and was expected to be released from the hospital later in the day.

The Rams wrapped up about two hours of practice shortly after 4 p.m. Thursday. Daniels, a defensive end from Fort Hood, Texas, was in the training room when the ambulance was called.

Coach Steve Fairchild says the head trainer and other staff were with the player from the start and a staffer went to the hospital with him.
