(Honolulu-AP) -- Hawaii football player Leonard Peters has been hospitalized with bruises to his kidney and spleen. Coach June Jones says the freshman safety was injured in morning practice yesterday after an inadvertent collision during a drill.
Peters, a 2000 Kahuku graduate, is a redshirt freshman who was a strong contender for the starting safety position. Jones says he doesn't know if Peters will be able to return in time for the season opener August 31st against eastern Illinois.
