“Update: Former NFL RB Peyton Hillis is still in intensive care after saving his children from drowning on January 5. Hillis is fighting. Initially, the lungs and kidneys were the main problems. His kidneys are now “of great concern”, according to [Channel 3]. Hillis is a hero, pray for him.”

After the accident, Hillis was taken to the hospital by helicopter. Initially, both Hillis’s lungs and kidneys were in jeopardy. Now, the kidneys have become so bad that they are a much bigger concern than his lungs.

On Thursday, run again Uncle provide an update, through GAMES:

“I just wanted to let everyone know on Razorback Nation that Peyton is getting better. He’s still in intensive care and has some kidney and lung problems but the doctors say he’s recovering. I just want to quell any possible rumors.” let’s begin. I’m sure he’ll want everyone to know that he appreciates all the prayers being put out for him!!”

That doesn’t seem to be the case anymore, or at least Hillis is currently trending down. The entire NFL world united around Damar Hamlin as he was in critical condition and now it looks like Hillis needs the same treatment.

In total, Hillis was in the NFL from 2008 to 2015, so he’s had a brief career but was able to make an impact on the league nonetheless.
