Bronco's Pritchard has lacerated kidney
DENVER - Denver Broncos receiver Mike Pritchard was listed in serious but stable condition Friday night at Presbyterian-St. Luke's Hospital with a lacerated kidney, a hospital spokesman said.
Pritchard noticed blood in his urine and was rushed to the hospital at about 8:30 p.m. by an ambulance responding to a 911 call, hospital spokesman Brad Bawmann said.
"He has a lacerated left kidney and a fairly significant bruise and a fair amount of blood loss due to the laceration," Bawmann said. "At this time, no surgery is required."
The condition may have been related to an incident that occurred during a practice session Friday, Bawmann said.
"Apparently, he said he fell onto a football, but that is second hand," Bawmann said.

Cougars squeeze out conference victory
SAN DIEGO, Calif. - In a match full of comebacks by BYU, the Cougars' women's volleyball team grabbed a 15-8, 11-15, 16-14, 15-13 conference win against San Diego State Friday night.
After the Cougars and Aztecs split the first two games, the Aztecs pulled out to an 8-3, 13-6, and 14-9 lead in the crucial game three. But with the game on the line freshman Angie Walker, starting on the front row for the first time this season, took the serve and took the Aztecs out of their rhythm to help BYU to three straight points and the score was 14-12. An exchange of sideouts, and it was Amma Lindqvist's turn on the service line. A tricky serve caused a lift call on the Aztecs and a kill by Marianne Clark tied the score. Gale Oborn put down a monster kill for the Cougars' 16th point and the game win.
