Army cornerback suffers head injury in fight with fellow cadet
WEST POINT, N.Y. — Army football player Josh Jenkins is recovering from a head injury stemming from a fight with another cadet during the Fourth of July weekend.
The academy says Jenkins was injured near his barracks room after returning from an off-campus restaurant. Jenkins was later taken to Westchester Medical Center for evaluation after classmates observed him acting out of character.
The academy is investigating. West Point did not immediately respond to a request from The Associated Press on Monday for an update on Jenkins’ condition.
Jenkins is a junior cornerback from Pittsburg, California. He led the team with four interceptions in 2014, ranked second with 63 tackles and had eight pass breakups.
