Carroll wide receiver Lamont Baldwin released from hospital

Carroll wide receiver Lamont Baldwin, who suffered a severe concussion and fractured skull in a collision during a combine on April 2, was released from Fairfax Inova Hospital this past Friday and is recovering at home, Lions Coach Rick Houchens said.

“I’ve been texting him and talking to him, not for long, just little bits and stuff because he is still in a lot of pain and still has real severe headaches,” Houchens said. “That’s a combination from the skull and concussion symptoms.”

Houchens said that Baldwin should soon begin therapy, but that he does not see his neurosurgeon for another week.

“Even though he’s out of the hospital, it’s a long-road type of recovery,” Houchens said. “We don’t know how long it will take.”
