Eastern Kentucky football player Colton Scurry suffered multiple facial fractures during a fight that allegedly involved three Kentucky football players over the weekend.
According to ESPN
, Scurry's father told The Courier-Journal about his son's injuries, but did not comment on the details.
Two EKU students, however, told the newspaper that Scurry, a redshirt sophomore, instigated the fight that occurred at Jerzees in Richmond, Kentucky. The students also alleged that the bar fight involved Kentucky wide receiver Dorian Baker, quarterback Drew Barker and defensive end Tymere Dubose.
According to Richmond police, Scurry told officers he was hit in the head repeatedly -- at one point losing consciousness -- and then unsuccessfully attempted to walk back to EKU.
Police said Scurry, 20, was taken by ambulance to Baptist Health hospital with a broken nose, broken bones around his cheek and orbital socket, multiple facial lacerations and a head wound that required stitches or staples to close.
