Colt Brennan reportedly alert and in stable condition in Honolulu hospital

By Cindy Boren

Former Redskins quarterback Colt Brennan is in stable condition and a family spokeswoman says he is alert and feeling better as he recovers from injuries he suffered in an auto accident Friday in Hawaii.

Brennan was flown to the Queen's Medical Center in Honolulu on Friday. It issued a brief statement saying Brennan's condition was stable; a family member told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser that Brennan suffered a broken cheekbone, a broken orbital, broken ribs and punctured lung and a broken clavicle.

Terry Brennan, Colt's father, said Saturday that Brennan's "head issues are favorable."

Brennan and two women were injured Friday in a two-vehicle collision near Kona on Hawaii. He was a passenger in an SUV driven by his girlfriend, Shakti Stream. It crossed the center line and collided head-on with a car driven by a 47-year-old Waikoloa woman. According to the Associated Press, both women were in serious condition Friday. There was no word on their condition Saturday, according to the Star-Advertiser. The accident is under investigation.

Brennan, 27, was a sixth-round pick by the Redskins in the 2008 NFL Draft but did not play in any games. He missed all of the 2009 season after hip surgery and was released at the start of training camp this summer. He signed with the Oakland Raiders, but was released in early September. A University of Hawaii star, Brennan, who's had four surgeries over his career, was working out in Hawaii and hoping for another shot at the NFL.

The woman who they hit is in rough shape. She's got fractures all over the place, has undergone multiple surgeries, is scheduled for more, and is being kept unconscious.
