According to reports out of Arlington, Texas, two officers were on their way to Lot 10 at about 8:20 p.m. local time after being alerted to a fight there. They hear a gunshot and discovered a man in his early 40s with life-threatening injuries. He was transported to a hospital and later flown by helicopter to a different hospital in Fort Worth.
The suspected shooter attempted to flee and injured his leg when he tripped over a retaining wall. He was taken to a hospital and changed with assault with a deadly weapon.
The incident happened about 90 minutes after the game ended, and while a Major League Baseball playoff game between the Rangers and Blue Jays was going on on the other side of the grounds.
Fells has had five surgeries on the foot and is scheduled for more as doctors continue to fight the Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection in an effort to save his foot, according to an NFL.com report. Fells has been in the hospital for more than a week, spending part of that time in intensive care.
According to the NFL.com report, Fells suffered a toe injury and then an ankle injury and was given a cortisone shot. After a week with pain in the ankle and foot, the 32-year-old was taken to the emergency room Oct. 2 with a 104-degree temperature. That’s when the MRSA infection was discovered.
Doctors are said to be concerned that the MRSA has gotten into the bone and could travel into his blood, making amputation a possible necessity.
“This is a serious situation that has been taken seriously from the beginning,” team spokesman Pat Hanlon said. “We’re all fighting for Daniel.”
The Giants, who had their entire practice facility scrubbed last Tuesday in an attempt to avoid further spread of MRSA, awarded Fells a game ball after Sunday night’s 30-27 victory over the Giants.
“That’s my boy. It just feels good to get him [the win],” tight end Larry Donnell said after catching the game-winning touchdown with 26 seconds remaining. “I’m going to tell him that I love him.”
“I think it’s the right thing for our team, and I’ve always got to do what’s right for our team and for our school,” said Haden, who asked Sarkisian to take a leave during a phone conversation Sunday after the coach went missing during practice.
Before the season, Sarkisian made an appearance at the school’s Salute to Troy pep rally and appeared to be intoxicated as he made questionable comments about the Trojans’ opponents. He publicly apologized, said he would be receiving treatment (without saying for what) and blamed his appearance on a combination of alcohol and medication.
Sarkisian is in his second season at the helm of the Trojans (3-2), who opened the season ranked eighth but have lost two of their last three games to drop out of the Top 25.
Haden told the players of Sarkisian’s departure in a team meeting. Offensive coordinator Clay Helton will serve as interim coach.
“[It was] clear the team had a great deal of concern about the health of Coach Sarkisian,” Haden said. “So did the staff have that concern for him, and it was also very apparent to me in the room of the support that Clay has from our team and his staff.”
