Senior Wisconsin running back and potential Heisman favorite Montee Ball was the victim of an unprovoked assault early Wednesday morning, the school announced. He's been released from the hospital and is under care of the school's sports medicine staff, according to the release, but did suffer "head injuries," according to police.

From the incident report, via UW:

A 21-year old man was attacked while walking in the 500 block of University Ave. early this morning. Witnesses said five men jumped the victim. He was knocked to the ground and kicked. The victim was taken to a hospital with head injuries. It does not appear he knew his attackers and this is being investigated as an unprovoked assault. The criminals were last seen running south on N. Frances St. toward the Kohl Center.
