(Neb.)- Exertion-Related Illness Puts 2 Nebraska Players In Hospital

By: Jeremy Anderson Posted at: 01/30/2018 12:49 PM
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska receiver Tyjon Lindsey and walk-on defensive lineman Dylan Owen were hospitalized after falling ill during winter conditioning drills.
Coach Scott Frost confirmed to The Lincoln Journal Star and Omaha World-Herald on Tuesday that both players have returned to the team. It was unclear when the players became ill, though Lindsey tweeted a request for prayers for his health on Jan. 23.
Nebraska spokesman Keith Mann said he had no additional information, and Frost did not immediately respond to an Associated Press request for comment.
Lindsey was in the hospital for three days and Owen for two. Frost told the Journal Star both were treated for rhabdomyolysis, a condition that occurs when muscle tissue breaks down and leaks into the blood. The condition can cause kidney damage.
