UConn senior running back Martin Hyppolite, a passenger in a fatal auto accident in Durham, N.H., Saturday morning, has been released from Portsmouth (N.H.) Regional Hospital.
Hyppolite was released Monday night, went home to Massachusetts and could be back on campus sometime this week. He will do some rehabilitation in Storrs but it is still too soon to know how this affects his football future, a UConn official said Tuesday.
The accident occurred on Route 4 in Durham, near the University of New Hampshire campus. A vehicle driven by Bruce Larson, 74, was hit head-on by a vehicle driven by Ryan Marchant, 22, of Wakefield, Mass., according to Durham Deputy Police Chief Rene Kelley.
Hyppolite, who is from Wakefield and lives in Malden, Mass., was a passenger in Marchant's vehicle.
Hyppolite had a 50-yard touchdown run last season but ended the 2012 season with 69 yards on 19 carries.
UConn Players At NFL Combine
The NFL combine is over and UConn players made their mark.
On Tuesday, cornerback Dwayne Gratz tied for first among corners in the bench press with 22 reps. He also ran a 4.47-second 40-yard dash, which was 14th-best among corners. Gratz was fifth in the vertical jump with a leap of 38 inches. Gratz tied for 12th in the broad jump at 10 feet, 5 inches.
Fellow defensive back Blidi Wreh-Wilson was fourth in the broad jump at 10-8. The two-time Huskies' captain ran a 4.53 40 and had 14 reps on the bench press and got up to 36-5 in the vertical.
On Monday, linebacker Sio Moore finished fifth in the 40 (4.65), was second in the bench press (29) for his position, was third in the vertical jump (38 inches) and fourth in the broad jump (10-7). NFL analyst Mike Mayock, working the NFL combine, called Moore's measurables "freakish." Mayock said Moore's stock rose and he could go in the second round of the April 25-27 NFL draft.
Trevardo Williams, high right ankle sprain and all, was tops among the defensive linemen in the 40 (4.57) and in the vertical jump (38 inches), was third in the broad jump (10-4) and tied for fifth with 30 reps on the bench.
