COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) The University of Maryland has asked an external group to review whether proper protocol was followed in the treatment and care of offensive lineman Jordan McNair, who was hospitalized after a team workout and died two weeks later.
McNair died Wednesday. He was 19.
Maryland executive athletic director Damon Evans said Thursday that McNair had "difficulty recovering" after finishing 10 sprints of 110 yards during the session on May 29. He was treated on the field and taken to the training room for observation before a 911 call was made.
