A San Jose State football player is expected to make a full recovery after being stabbed early Sunday morning.
Chad Miller, who started three games last season for the Spartans as a safety, is currently in stable condition at the Valley Medical Center. Police are currently investigating the altercation that led to his stabbing.
According to the Mercury News Miller’s family is asking for privacy while the matter is resolved. They have declined interview requests.
San Jose police were flagged down near Post and South First streets around 1 a.m. They were told that someone had been stabbed. Miller was not originally identified as the victim in the stabbing, per departmental rules. To this point, no suspects have been identified in the stabbing.
Miller was a standout athlete at Vallejo high school where he also lettered in track and field. Since arriving on campus at San Jose State, he has not been a stranger to altercation. Earlier in his tenure with the Spartans, he had multiple bones in his face broken after a teammate hit him in the face with a skateboard. The incident was the result of an earlier disagreement during practice.
