Cal says it is cooperating with a police investigation after an altercation between two football players sent freshman Fabiano Hale to the hospital last Friday.

The school released a statement Tuesday saying a player was taken to an urgent care facility on campus before being transferred to the hospital. A spokeswoman for Alta Bates Summit Medical Center in Berkeley said Hale was released on Saturday morning after receiving treatment for unspecified injuries.

The identity of the second player has not been made public. Messages left with the university’s police department seeking additional information were not immediately returned Tuesday.

Cal coach Sonny Dykes declined to comment when asked about the incident at his weekly news conference Tuesday. Hale, a walk-on from Santa Cruz, has yet to play.Cal footballCollege SportsFabiano Hale
