Update: RB Fabiano Hale's status following the confrontation in the locker room has been released by the Santa Cruz Sentinel:
Cal football player Fabiano Hale was at home Monday and recovering from a concussion sustained in a post-practice altercation with a teammate Friday that sent the freshman walk-on to the hospital.
"I have a headache still," said Hale, a record-setting running back at Soquel High last season. "I feel like crap."
Hale, who doesn't remember being taken to the hospital, also received stitches on his ear.
"I don't know what my emotions are," said Hale, who is 6 feet, 215 pounds. "I'm focusing on getting better and getting my head right so I can focus on school."
Hale spoke with Cal coaches Tuesday afternoon and said he plans to rejoin the team Monday.
We wish Fabiano the best and a speedy recovery.

Beyond this, Cal has mostly been quiet on the subject:
Cal says there has been "a lot of misinformation reported today that does not need to be addressed." Sonny Dykes will not comment.— Jeff Faraudo (@JeffFaraudo) November 5, 2013
Dykes said hazing of rookies, or presumably freshmen, is a football "dinosaur" behavior that has no place in the game.— Jeff Faraudo (@JeffFaraudo) November 5, 2013
Dykes said tradition his staff inherited at @CalFootball was freshman cleaning up for all after mealtime. "We ended that immediately."— Jeff Faraudo (@JeffFaraudo) November 5, 2013
