Illinois DE Roundtree injures spine in swimming accident

CHAMPAIGN, Illinois (AP) Illinois defensive end Bobby Roundtree was speaking, eating and sitting up after severely injuring his spine in a weekend swimming accident near his Florida home, a school spokesman said Monday.

Roundtree had surgery at Mease Countryside Hospital in Safety Harbor on Sunday, a day after the accident, the university announced earlier Monday. There were no details on what happened.

Athletic department spokesman Kent Brown said in an email to the AP later Monday that Roundtree remained hospitalized but he was able to "eat and speak normally."
