Matt McGloin Checked For Seizure After Post-Practice Fight, According To Report

Penn State Matt McGloin was reportedly knocked out in a locker room scuffle with wide receiver Curtis Drake following a heated practice on Saturday. McGloin was reportedly taken to the hospital to be checked out and the team met at 4:30 p.m., to presumably discuss the situation.

The situation, however, may have been more serious than just the fight. McGloins' father told the Patriot-News the Penn State quarterback was being checked for a possible seizure following the incident.

Paul McGloin, Matt's father, told The Patriot-News Saturday afternoon that he had left his home and just arrived in State College to check on his son's health. Paul McGloin said Penn State team doctor Wayne Sebastianelli notified him that his son was being checked for a possible seizure.

Later, McGloin's father apparently confirmed a seizure (via Ron Musselman).

Matt McGloin's dad said his son suffered seizure today and has possible concussion. Says he is back at his apartment now.

As an aside, the following tweets were sent from an account that's previously been linked to McGloin a short time ago.

A teammate tweeted at him a short time later telling him to take it easy, as well.

Edit: McGloin says he was hacked and after even more suspicious tweets, the account was suspended. Safe to say it wasn't McGloin.
