Rhett Rodriguez in ICU with lung injury
Rhett Rodriguez is in the hospital recovering from a lung injury suffered on Saturday.
Rodriguez, the son of Rich Rodriguez, got hurt in Louisiana Monroe’s 29-16 win over Troy.
Rhett went 10/16 for 131 yards and a touchdown pass. But he suffered a lung injury and is in the intensive care unit at the hospital now, his father said Sunday.
Our family would like to thank everyone who has reached out with their thoughts and prayers for Rhett, as he is currently in the ICU at the hospital because of a lung injury from last night’s game against Troy.
