Wyoming Coach Laid Up with Kidney Stone

LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - Wyoming coach Dave Christensen missed football practice and a media conference call Tuesday while being treated for a kidney stone.

Athletics Department spokesman Tim Harkins says the 48-year-old went to the hospital Tuesday morning shortly after arriving at his office for a morning meeting. Assistant head coach Dan Hammerschmidt filled in for Christensen later in the morning on the weekly Mountain West Conference coaches teleconference.

Harkins said Christensen remained in the hospital when the team began practice at 3:30 pm. Christensen is in his first year as head coach at Wyoming. The Cowboys play Florida Atlantic at Fort Lauderdale, FL on Saturday.
