HOUSTON (AP) - Houston Texans tight end Anthony Hill was hospitalized this week after testing positive for swine flu.
Texans vice president of communications Tony Wyllie says Hill, a
rookie, is the only player on the team believed to have swine flu and that other players are being monitored.
Hill, a fourth-round pick from North Carolina State, has spent
two nights in the hospital. Coach Gary Kubiak told the Houston
Chronicle, which first reported the ailment, that Hill could be released later Friday.
Houston hosts Oakland this Sunday.
