Texas OL Hudson (heat) released from hospital

Texas offensive lineman Patrick Hudson was released from the hospital Wednesday after being rushed to the emergency room last week with a heat-related illness, the school announced.

Hudson will resume his classes Thursday, though there is no timetable for his return to physical activity, according to the school.

Hudson was taken to the emergency room by ambulance on Sept. 5 because of what was called a “full body cramp” brought on by the 95-degree heat. He was released from the ICU a day later but remained hospitalized.

Longhorns coach Tom Herman said doctors were investigating why Hudson would have such a spike in his body temperature when no other players did.

Hudson, who is 6-foot-4 and 335 pounds, is “kind of a cramp guy. For a massive human being, he’s not very fleshy. He’s got a pretty low percentage of body fat,” Herman said, adding that the sophomore has had cramping issues in the past.

As a result of the illness, Hudson missed the Longhorns’ 28-21 win over Tulsa on Saturday.
