A Utah State football player is recovering in the hospital after suffering “non-traumatic sudden cardiac arrest” during a spring practice session Thursday, the university announced Friday.
Josh Davis, a redshirt freshman wideout from California, collapsed on the field and was taken to Logan Regional Hospital before later being transported to McKay-Dee Hospital.
He was said to be in critical condition but was upgraded to fair condition the following morning. According to the school, he was “taken off life-sustaining medical devices and is breathing on his own.”

“Through God’s grace, and an amazing group of Trainers & Medical Professionals we are doing better every minute today. So grateful for all the prayers & support lifted up over the past 24 hrs.”
