UB football player hospitalized after emergency during workout

A University at Buffalo football player has been hospitalized after suffering a medical emergency during a workout on Monday.

A UB spokesman issued a written statement about the matter, which was first reported by the UB Spectrum:

“Solomon Jackson, a member of UB’s football team, was transported to the hospital this morning after a medical emergency at a team conditioning session. The university is in touch with Solomon’s family and hospital medical staff,” spokesman John DellaContrada said in an email.

DellaContrada said the university could not release any private health information due to federal privacy laws. The Spectrum reported that his condition was critical.

A spokesman for Buffalo General Medical Center confirmed Tuesday morning that Jackson was a patient, but said the hospital could not release any further information, also because of federal privacy laws.

On last season’s online roster, Jackson is listed as a sophomore defensive end from Stone Mountain, Ga.
