Utah football players attacked; Paul Kruger and Greg Newman stabbed


Greg Newman, Dave Kruger and Paul Kruger

Some horrible news out of Salt Lake this evening, as it's being reported that Paul Kruger, his younger brother Dave and defensive lineman Greg Newman were attacked last night.

The three had just left a party when they were jumped by unknown assailants. Dave Kruger sustained minor injuries, while Greg Newman was stabbed in the back with a screwdriver, he was released from the hospital early this morning. Paul Kruger, Utah's starting DE, was stabbed twice, suffered a collapsed lung and underwent emergency surgery due to the wounds. And while it doesn't appear to be critical, he is expected to be in the hospital for at least a week. Utah coach Kyle Whittingham said he will release a statement when more is known.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Kruger and Newman families.
