Internet message boards lit up today with rumors of Kevin Randleman being hospitalized. Unfortunately, those rumors are not just rumors. They are true.
According to Randleman’s friend and training partner Wes Sims, Randleman was admitted to the hospital a few days ago and remains there today. Sims did not have much detailed information about Randleman’s condition, “He’s in the hospital, but I haven’t even been able to talk to him yet.” Sims did verify that it was a severe health problem.
Randleman’s wife, Elizabeth, later clarified that he did not suffer any kidney failure, as we first reported. She did state that if he had not gone to the emergency room on Friday night, Randleman’s health would have digressed to include kidney failure.
As it is, Randleman’s body was shutting down and doctors are currently working to flush out his system. He remains hospitalized.
