Two University of Utah football players were shot at a house party just before midnight on Saturday. The incident took place near the campus when three unwanted guests arrived at the party, and sophomore tight end Lo Falemaka and freshman running back Marcel Brooks-Brown attempted to escort them out.
Police are searching for three suspects in the case.
"Obviously, our first concern is that both Lo and Marcel are going to be OK, which appears to be the case," head coach Kyle Whittingham said, in a statement released by the team on Sunday. "We don't have all of the details yet, but it is our understanding that they are the victims included in this incident and we feel very fortunate that they are expected to fully recover. It is unknown at this time how soon they will be able to return to the football field, but we are optimistic it will be in the near post future."
The Utes are ranked 24th in the nation, and are off to a 2-0 start with wins over Michigan and Utah State.
