One of the 13 Iowa football players hospitalized in 2011 after an offseason workout has filed a lawsuit against the school. William Lowe, a reserve cornerback for the Hawkeyes, says the team was negligent in "developing and implementing a dangerous improper training program." He alleges that coaches and trainers failed to properly supervise him during the now-infamous workout on Jan. 20, 2011 and failed to offer care after he and others reported first pain and symptoms. Lowe and 12 others were diagnosed with exertional rhabdomyolysis, the result of muscles breaking down and releasing proteins into the bloodstream, after checking into the hospital on Jan. 24, 2011. After the "rhabdo" outbreak, Iowa formed an investigative committee that made recommendations to avoid the issue in the future.
