DULUTH, Minn. (AP) - Authorities say standout University of Minnesota Duluth senior running back Austin Sikorski was stabbed in the abdomen over the weekend, and is in stable condition.
A Star Tribune report (http://strib.mn/1pzoRqV ) says the 22-year-old was stabbed Saturday morning. Duluth police spokesman Jim Hansen says Sikorski was stabbed in the lower right side of his abdomen about 1:55 a.m. after a street fight. Hansen says alcohol appears to have been a factor in the altercation.
Police have identified a ''person of interest'' in the stabbing but made no arrests as of early Monday afternoon.
Sikorski led his team in rushing last season with 1,290 yards and 16 touchdowns in 13 games.
The school says it's aware of the incident and is still gathering details.
