Former University of Hawaii quarterback Colt Brennan remains "heavily sedated" as he recovers from several injuries suffered in a two-car accident Friday, his father Terry Brennan said this morning.
"He's far from being alert," Terry Brennan said. "There's no real conversation with him other than he acknowledges we're here (with hand gestures). He hasn't been able to speak. He'll moan and groan, and maybe point to his neck brace. It's uncomfortable. They have tubes and IVs. He has not conversed at all."
Brennan has a punctured lung, and fractures to four ribs, his left clavicle, a cheekbone and left eye socket.
Terry Brennan said his son was removed from a ventilator yesterday afternoon.
He said his son might undergo an operation on the clavicle in the coming days.
Terry Brennan said there has been "damage" to the eye socket, and it will be "monitored for the next couple of days."
Although there had been reports of internal bleeding, Terry Brennan said, "I haven't heard of any internal bleeding."
