Miami offensive lineman Hunter Knighton was hospitalized after losing consciousness following a Monday workout session at the school, the Miami Herald reported.
Details of his condition have not been released, but the Miami athletic department did release a statement later in the day:
“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.”
Knighton is a 6-foot-6, 278-pound freshman who redshirted last fall after undergoing shoulder surgery.
We’ll be sure to update his status as we get more information.
