Colt Brennan 'still sedated and in stable condition,' parents say

By Cindy Boren

Terry and Betsy Brennan, the parents of former Washington Redskins quarterback Colt Brennan, issued a statement on his condition Monday, as their son continues to recover from injuries he suffered in a car crash Friday.

Colt is still sedated and in stable condition. We want to thank everyone for their concern and kindness. We also ask for privacy for the time being, so Colt can heal. The hospital will continue to provide updates on his condition.

Brennan was injured Friday when the SUV driven by his girlfriend, Shakti Stream, crossed the center line of a highway on Hawaii and struck a sedan driven by Theresa Wang. Brennan and Wang were flown to The Queen's Medical Center in Honolulu. Wang is in serious condition. Kona Community Hospital declined to provide information on Stream's condition, citing patient privacy and confidentiality laws. The Brennans' statement added:

Although our son, Colt, is not in the best of shape, we are certainly praying for both Shakti and Theresa Wang to get better. This has been a tragic ordeal for everyone, not just Colt. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Theresa and her family. Mahalo to all of our friends and family for their ongoing love and support.

Brennan, a sixth-round draft pick out of the University of Hawaii in 2008, was cut by the Redskins in early August. He signed with the Oakland Raiders and was cut by then in early September. Brennan missed all of the 2008 season after undergoing surgery. He did not play in a regular-season game in 2009.

Get well soon Colt. You weren't given a shot in DC, and that's a shame. Especially because we just beat a good team with backups. Hmmm, that should say something about the state of the Reskins managements' continuous lack of collective ability to find talent and play the right people. Either way, you're a good dude, so hang in there and keep banging on the door and someone will let you in. I know it. You'll get your shot and everyone who didn't give you one will regret it.

Greetings Colt:

At this moment football takes a back seat to the health of you, Ms Stream and Ms Wang. Our thoughts and prayers are with you ALL at this time. Please take care one and all.

My wife, Dorotha and I will be praying for each and every one of you for a speedy and complete recovery.

Take care,

Bob and Dorotha Schnebly
