Ind. football player home month after head injury

COLUMBIA CITY, Ind. (AP) — A northeastern Indiana high school football player who suffered serious head injuries during a game last month is now back home.

The family of Columbia City senior running back and linebacker Sam Dailey says he’s been released from a rehabilitation center after spending more than two weeks there. Dailey was in serious condition after being injured Aug. 23 in a game at Warsaw and was hospitalized for about 10 days.

Columbia City football coach Randy Hudgins tells WANE-TV ( ) that Dailey is now receiving daily physical therapy and in-home care.

Doctors say Dailey suffered an acute head injury which caused a blood clot to form on his brain. He underwent several surgeries to reduce swelling.
