Brandon Davis became dehydrated while participating in a routine weightlifting session Wednesday and was taken to Florida Hospital East. His kidneys failed and he had tests on his liver and heart, his father, Adrian Davis said.
``He's doing much better,'' Adrian Davis said Monday. ``His kidneys are back to normal and were awaiting test results on his liver enzymes.''
UCF's athletic department said in a statement Sunday that the training was ``a rigorous out-of-season workout'' that was ``not atypical'' for a college football conditioning session.
The school's training methods have been scrutinized since wide receiver Ereck Plancher collapsed and died during a conditioning workout last spring.
