Burns Hospitalized

Still no confirmed reports on what sent Derrick Burns to the hospital.

Pitt football player Derrick Burns was hospitalized Tuesday with an unspecified medical condition, according to a statement released by the school’s athletic department.

Burns, a 5-foot-11, 235-pound redshirt freshman fullback, was listed in stable condition Tuesday night. More information about his condition was expected after tests were completed.

Rumors are he was life-flighted to UPMC. That there is a blood clot. But again, no confirmation.

Hopefully this will turn out to be a small problem, or one that was caught early enough. It goes without saying, that his football career takes a backseat to being able to live a long and healthy life.





I hope this turns out to be nothing serious.

Didn’t he collapse and end up in the hospital early in Spring practices, too?
