VIDEO: SJSU Football Player Remains Hospitalized with Burns on 50 Percent of Body


SAN JOSE — A San Jose State football player remains in intensive care tonight after he suffered critical burns in an apartment fire last week.

Spartan’s linebacker Jared Leaf, 20, sustained mostly second degree burns over 50-percent of his body.

Leaf’s family says he is on a ventilator and under sedation to help him deal with the pain.

He has already had two surgeries and his family says he is going to have to undergo many more skin grafts over the next six- to eight-weeks.

A Facebook page has been set up to alert his supporters about how they can help cover his mounting medical bills.

His friends and family say there has already been a huge outpouring from the community.
