Seattle Seahawk Kevin Hauser hospitalized with collapsed lung

He collapsed Sunday midway through the 3rd period of Seattle’s game against Tampa Bay. From AP-

Seattle Seahawks long snapper Kevin Houser is hoping to be out of the hospital in time for Christmas Eve after doctors re-inflated his collapsed lung.

Seattle coach Jim Mora said the 32-year-old veteran of 10 seasons was sitting up in his hospital room Monday and watching “Ren and Stimpy” cartoons with his wife and kids.

“He’s doing much, much better,” Mora said.

Houser got hurt while covering a punt in the second quarter Sunday against Tampa Bay.

The Seahawks’ only true kick snapper then went into a photographer’s shed on the sideline to get a painkilling injection. He returned to snap for Seattle’s only extra point later in the half.

Midway through the third quarter, Houser ran at Tampa Bay’s Sammie Stroughter at the end of a 33-yard punt return and collapsed in pain on the sideline.

Get well Kevin Hauser. If you tire of Ren and Stimpy, may I suggest Sabrina The Teenage Witch?
