Paul Pasqualoni said Wednesday that reserve running back Martin Hyppolite, a passenger in a fatal car accident Saturday in New Hampshire, sustained a hip injury but the UConn coach was unclear on the extent.
"The doctors [at UConn] have gotten all the X-rays and our doctors here and trainers here have spoken with the people in New Hampshire at the hospital," Pasqualoni said. "You know, it's just going to be a matter of how fast he heals. At this point, I'm not clear on what the timeline on that is, but the information I've gotten is, once it heals, it heals."
Pasqualoni said he hadn't heard anything about Hyppolite's football future being in doubt.
"No, I haven't heard anything [saying] that this is a career-ending thing," Pasqualoni said. "I had not heard that, but I think it's somewhat unpredictable to say he's going to be OK in X amount of weeks or months."
Pasqualoni said Hyppolite is expected back on campus and in class Thursday.
Hyppolite was released from a New Hampshire hospital Monday night.
A car driven by Bruce Larson, 74, was hit head-on by a vehicle driven by Ryan Marchment, 22, of Wakefield, Mass., according to Durham Deputy Police Chief Rene Kelley. Larson was killed in the crash. Hyppolite was a passenger in Marchment's vehicle.
