Utah State Aggies defensive tackle Travis Seefeldt has been released from the hospital, making him the final player to be so after a horrific car accident last month. John Taylor of NBC Sports’ College Football Talk reported Seefeldt’s release.
Seefeldt and three teammates (John Taylor, Adewale Adeoye and Edmund Faimalo), along with former USU softball player Sarah Vasquez, were injured in the accident last month. None were wearing seatbelts as the driver (yet to be named) of the SUV in which they were riding was hit by a semi truck at an intersection. At the time of the crash, the five USU athletes were reported as being critically injured.
But now all four football players are out of the hospital and their collective prognosis is good, though it has yet to be said whether or not they will be able to play in the upcoming season. Seefeldt was the starting nose guard for the team exiting spring practice, and has 54 tackles with four sacks and a forced fumble in his time with the Aggies.
Utah State opens 2015 at Romney Stadium on September 3, taking on the Big Sky’s Southern Utah Thunderbirds.
