Due to patient privacy laws, the university has not disclosed the cause of Lott's injury during a Wednesday morning football practice. The practice was the first with full pads.

Beaty also said Lott's parents arrived Wednesday night from Texas and are with him, adding more information will be provided once the university is allowed to disclose it.


University of Kansas officials say freshman offensive lineman Jacobi Lott is in stable condition after suffering an injury during football practice.

Lott, a nephew of Hall of Fame defensive back Ronnie Lott, was injured Wednesday. The school has not released information on the nature of his injury.

An ambulance was called to the practice fields and Lott was taken to a hospital after being stabilized.

The school said had no information on a timetable for Lott's recovery or if he would be available to play in the future.

On Thursday, head coach David Beatty said Lott's parents arrived last night. He added that they will provide updates on his condition as soon as the University is allowed to release it.

Lott, from Amarillo, Texas, chose the Jayhawks after also getting an offer from Texas. His father, Charlie, played football at Texas Tech.
