looked good in practice on Monday and "you would never know that 3 days ago he was being rushed to the hospital."

Swinney said medical staff is confident of what was wrong with Sammy and why it happened. Swinney called it a "perfect storm" of dehydration, some trauma to the kidney caused by the physical nature of the Florida State game, and a virus. Everything looked good on his checkups Sunday and Monday. They will have another check after a full week of practice.
