Brandon Wimberly Moved From Intensive Care, 'A Little Better Every Day'

Some encouraging news out of Reno, where Nevada Wolf Pack football player Brandon Wimberly remains hospitalized while recovering from being shot in the stomach on June 18: He's been moved out of intensive care, though there's still no word on when he'll be able to return home. Head coach Chris Ault spoke to the Reno Gazette-Journal about Wimberly's progress:

He's certainly still in some pain, and it's still a pretty serious thing, but yesterday we had some good conversations and he's a lot more alert than he was. Right now, they're focusing on giving his body enough medication to heal and get a little better every day. But these last couple of days have been really good.

And if you're local, a gentle reminder: Law enforcement officials are still looking for information on the night in question. The Gazette-Journal has more details on a car of interest, allegedly used as a getaway vehicle, as well as phone numbers to report tips.
