Lymon stabbed in chest during night club fight

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- Purdue wide receiver Selwyn Lymon
was expected to be released from the hospital later this week as he
recovers from being stabbed in the chest.

The university said in a release Monday that Lymon was in
satisfactory condition. Lymon was stabbed last week during a fight
at a night club.

"While there are still a number of unanswered questions that
surround this matter, we are relieved that Selwyn is on his way to
making a complete recovery," coach Joe Tiller said in the release.

"His well-being always has been our primary concern. I will
meet with him as soon as he is released from the hospital."

Tiller said he was considering possible disciplinary measures
against Lymon, who started 12 games as a sophomore last season,
after he was stabbed March 30. The stabbing is being investigated
by police.

Lymon was originally listed in critical condition.

Safety Torri Williams was arrested on a drunken driving charge
less than an hour after Lymon was stabbed and was identified in
police records as having been with Lymon and at least one other
player during the fight. He was indefinitely suspended from the
team.

Tiller said he would have no further comment on Lymon or
Williams pending new developments. He previously said any Purdue
players who were at the bar fight could face disciplinary action.
