Florida center T.J. McCoy was struck by an alleged drunk driver in the early-morning hours on Friday and spent the day in the hospital.
On Saturday, the offensive lineman posted a message to his Twitter account stating that he was a little sore but is now “resting and getting stronger.” McCoy said that he had no broken bones but did have some road burn after being thrown from his scooter.
He added that he was looking forward to going to church on Easter Sunday.
