Griffith’s father: Griffith out of his coma

Shannon Griffith posted on his Twitter account Wednesday evening that Indiana wide receiver Isaac Griffith has been taken out of his medically induced coma and taken off the ventilator and is now breathing on his own. His statement on Twitter follows.

“Today was a very good day for Isaac!” Griffith said. “Early this afternoon the doctors gave the orders to remove him from the ventilator and bring him out of his medically induced coma he woke up well is breathing on his own and resting at this present moment. We are still in a Marathon for his recover and this two is just a little battle he is doing well we still have those little battles in front of us. He has responded to his name immediately, moved his hands, squeezed Kim’s hand, moved his feet. He has some issues they are treating with antibiotics for his lungs but that is something we expected. We are giving praise to God for his strength and still need your prayer.s We will update in the morning once he is evaluated but this was a big step forward for Isaac. Thanks for all the well wishes and support for our family our faith and strength in God and our prayers are being answered Isaac is #WinningTheLittleBattles #PrayForIke God bless.”
