Rhett Rodriguez in ICU After Sustaining “Severe Trauma Injury” During Game Saturday



Louisiana-Monroe junior quarterback Rhett Rodriguez suffered a “severe trauma injury” during Saturday night’s game against Troy and is currently in the intensive care unit at St. Francis Medical Center, ULM head coach Terry Bowden and offensive coordinator Rich Rodriguez confirmed through statements.

Rhett, the son of former WVU head coach Rich Rodriguez, played the entire game against Troy, and it’s unknown at what point Rhett sustained the reported lung injury. Warhawk Report, a Rivals’ channel for ULM, reported that Rhett suffered a partially collapsed lung.

Rich thanked those who have kept Rhett and the Rodriguez family in mind with thoughts and prayers on Sunday night through a Twitter post. Rhett’s injury and the duration of his hospital stay are currently unspecified, and he is currently still in the ICU at St. Francis.
