An already tough day proved even more trying for the University of Miami football program.

Redshirt freshman Hunter Knighton is unconscious and currently at University of Miami Hospital following an offseason workout on Monday, according to a report by the Miami Herald.

This news comes on the same day former UM defensive back JoJo Nicolas crashed into an 18-wheeler while heading westbound on the MacArthur Causeway in the early morning. He is in critical condition.

Knighton, who is listed at 6-6, 278 pounds, was a three-star two-way lineman at the Hun School of Princeton in Pottstown, Penn. He sat out the 2013 season and redshirted to retain eligibility.
