Mark Barr Upgraded From Critical To Stable Condition

I missed this last night but Mark Barr, the fourth passenger in the car crash that claimed the lives of Ben Flick and Sean VanDyne two weeks ago has been upgraded from critical to stable condition.

Receiver Mark Barr of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., has been upgraded from critical to stable condition at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, UC spokesman Ryan Koslen said Tuesday.

Koslen said that Barr is making "slow, steady progress" from injuries suffered in the Sept. 21 auto accident that killed teammate and freshman offensive lineman Ben Flick of Hamilton.

The nature and extent of Barr's injuries are unknown, though it is clearly quite serious. Simply seeing that he has been upgraded from critical to stable is a good sign. He still has a ways to go to get back to normal, still this is great news and should be treated as such.
