SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a Cal State San Jose football player is recovering Monday after being stabbed in a weekend off-campus fight.

University officials identified the victim as Chad Miller.

He started three games at safety for the Spartans last season.

The university says in a statement that Miller is expected to recover. He is a junior.

San Jose police did not return an email sent Monday seeking comment about the stabbing.

Miller did not play in his second season with the university.

He was injured following an on-campus dispute where a teammate allegedly hit Miller in the face with a skateboard.

Here is a statement from San Jose State:

“We are aware of an incident late Saturday night/early Sunday morning in downtown San Jose in which San Jose State student and football player Chad Miller was a stabbing victim. He is hospitalized and is expected to recover. Our thoughts and prayers are with Chad and his family for his prompt recovery.”
