MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - Middle Tennessee football player Avery Hatten's condition has been upgraded to stable according to team physician Dr. Paul Patel. Hatten was diagnosed with an abscess of his liver on Thursday and is currently being treated at Vanderbilt Medical Center.

 

The abscess, which occurred from a virul infection, has been drained and is being treated with antibiotics. Hatten, who is improving, will undergo another cat scan on his liver later this week to further evaluate how far the abscess has declined.

 

Hatten, the Blue Raiders' starting fullback from Hattiesburg, MS, began developing symptoms on Monday, Nov. 18. When the symptoms did not improve he was admitted to the Middle Tennessee Medical Center on Thursday where he was diagnosed with the abscess.

 

Hatten will remain at Vanderbilt for the next few weeks.
