Senior tight end Mike Ragone was released from the hospital on Thursday after spending the night due to heat illness suffered after Notre Dame’s first day in full pads. The New Jersey native was treated by the Notre Dame medical staff before being taken to the hospital for observation.
Reports have stated that the Notre Dame medical staff treated Ragone immediately after noticing signs of heat illness and brought his body temperature down before taking him to the hospital for observation.
Ragone was held out of Thursday’s practices and won’t return to the field until the Notre Dame medical staff clears him to play. At a minimum, Ragone will be held out of Friday’s two-a-days practices.
While Ragone is out, Bobby Burger and Tyler Eifert will see more reps in practice.
