Marlon Lucky Hospitalized

Sunday evening, Husker running back Marlon Lucky was taken to BryanLGH West hospital. Below is a quote from his high school coach, found in the Omaha World Herald:

"I know he was in the intensive-care unit in stable condition," said Brad Ratcliff, coach at North Hollywood (Calif.) High School. "I want to give his family some room and some privacy. I'm not at liberty to say anything else."

Husker Extra points out that Lucky has had a 'somewhat rocky college career'. He had considered transferring at the end of last season, even though with Brandon Jackson leaving early for the NFL, Lucky would most likely be the starting and featured back in Nebraska's offense.

Wow TV out of Omaha is reporting that he was hospitalized because of an overdose.

Whatever the reasons for his hospitalization - no doubt they will come out with time. In the mean time, keep the kid in your prayers and hope for the best for him and his family.
