Les Miles: Guice is OK, will have tests done
HOOVER, Alabama - LSU coach Les Miles said at SEC media days Thursday, Derrius Guice is recovering after a health emergency in Baton Rouge Wednesday.
A WBRZ photographer recorded video of Guice being taken away in an ambulance from the indoor practice facility. Emergency workers were called after Guice apparently lost consciousness.
ESPN.com reported Miles told reporters Guice is OK, but further tests are being conducted.
"I don't know if it's fatigue. I don't know if it's blood work. I don't know if it's low blood pressure. I don't have any idea. I can only tell you tell that it was a concern that we needed to back him off and get him relaxed, so we did," Miles said.
It was unclear if Guice remained in the hospital or not following his ambulance ride there shortly after 5 p.m. Wednesday.
Guice was one of the best running backs of the 2015 class. He is a recruit from Catholic High.
Guice tweeted from his Twitter handle @DhaSickest overnight "Okay I did not pass out during or after a workout okay guys?! Thanks.."
