Hawkeye Football Players in Hospital
A dozen University of Iowa football players had to go to the hospital Monday night after a workout.
The Cedar Rapids Gazette reports that it's because of an exertion condition, when muscle fibers break down, get into the bloodstream and can cause kidney problems.
The school says symptoms started after an NCAA allowable winter workout.
The players, who have not been identified because of health privacy laws, are in stable condition and are responding well to treatment at the University of Iowa Hospital.
Athletic Director Gary Barta said Head Coach Kirk Ferentz is out of town for recruiting but is aware of the situation.
