WSAW is reporting that Wisconsin running back Montee Ball has been hospitalized after being attacked by five men Wednesday morning.
According to witnesses, the men knocked Ball to the ground and began kicking him. Ball was taken to the hospital with apparent head injuries. Police say that it doesn’t appear that Ball knew the men and they are investigating this as an unprovoked attack.
Here’s Wisconsin head coach, Brett Bielema’s statement on the attack:
“My concern right now is for Montee’s health and well-being. Montee has been released from the hospital and is under the care and supervision of our sports medicine staff. We will continue to evaluate him as we approach the start of fall camp this weekend. I do expect Montee to make a full recovery.”
