Former MSU-Mankato Football Player Breathing On His Own
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — There is some good news to report about the former MSU-Mankato football player who was assaulted two weeks ago.
The CaringBridge site for Isaac Kolstad said that he was taken off life support and was breathing on his own.
He was also able to tolerate being off sedation medication.
The post said Kolstad remains in a coma due to his brain injuries and the damage that was caused.
Kolstad was involved in a fight in downtown Mankato.
According to the complaint, Kolstad punched former Gopher quarterback Phillip Nelson in the back after an argument. Police say Trevor Shelley then knocked Kolstad to the ground and Nelson is accused of kicking him in the head.
