Cincinnati player hurt in accident upgraded in ICU

CINCINNATI (AP) — A Cincinnati freshman hurt in a traffic accident that killed a teammate last month has been upgraded in an intensive care unit.

Receiver Mark Barr of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., has been changed from serious to stable condition at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center. A school spokesman said Tuesday that doctors are encouraged by his slow but steady progress.

Freshman offensive lineman Ben Flick of Hamilton, Ohio, was killed in the one-vehicle accident on the way back from a game against Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, on Sept. 21. The driver — an 18-year-old Miami student — also died.

Barr and receiver Javon Harrison from suburban Dayton were injured. Harrison was treated and released.

The three players were redshirt freshmen who didn't travel with the team.
