What’s goin on?

UConn head football coach Paul Pasqualoni said Huskies senior reserve running back Martin Hyppolite, a passenger in a fatal car accident Saturday in New Hampshire, sustained a hip injury but was unclear on the extent.

“The doctors here have gotten all the x-rays and our doctors here and trainers here have spoken with the people in New Hampshire at the hospital,” Pasqualoni said. “You know, it’s just going to be a matter of how fast he heals. At this point, I’m not clear on what the timeline on that is but the information I’ve gotten is, once it heals, it heals.”

Pasqualoni said he hasn’t heard anything regarding Hyppolite’s football future being in doubt.

“No, I haven’t heard anything meaning that this is a career-ending thing,” Pasqualoni said. “I had not heard that but I think it’s somewhat unpredictable to say he’s going to be OK in X amount of weeks or months.”

Pasqualoni said Hyppolite is expected back on campus and in class Thursday.

Here’s the redshirt junior talking about his scoring run and how he thinks he can contribute. He should get more burn against Rutgers Saturday especially against the defense because of what he did do and can do. Although he showed speed to the outside against Buffalo, Hyppolite can be just as much of a problem hitting the middle because he’s strong and he will shake you.

“It was definitely exciting after everything I’ve been through with the ACL (missed all of last season) and then getting moved from offense to defense then back to offense. It was my first career touchdown and a long touchdown, too. I never expected to take a sweep 50 yards because they had me as the big back, in between the tackles but I was so excited that I got the chance to do that. Everything worked well. My teammates blocked so well on the play.” Continue reading
