News broke tonight that Sebastian Tretola was treated at a hospital in Arkansas for a gunshot wound early this morning. The Titans issued this statement tonight via Paul Kuharsky:
#Titans: "We are aware of the reports that Sebastian (Tretola) received treatment for a wound when he was grazed by a bullet. " 1/2— Paul Kuharsky (@PaulKuharskyNFL) July 23, 2017
#Titans: "He has been released from the hospital and is thankful for only a minor injury." 2/2— Paul Kuharsky (@PaulKuharskyNFL) July 23, 2017
Thankfully it was only a minor injury. There is no word yet on his ability to be ready for training camp when it opens later this week.
We don’t have any other details surrounding the shooting at this time so there is no point in speculating what the events were that led up to the shooting. What we do know is that this is the second time that Tretola has been in the news this offseason. The first was with the incident where Tajae Sharpe #allegedly beat up a guy on the first night of the NFL draft. Tretola, again #allegedly, stood watch while Sharpe beat the dude up.
Tretola might want to go ahead and have a good training camp to make sure he makes the opening day roster.
