Indiana wide receiver Isaac Griffith is in critical condition in a Florida hospital after a water accident, according to his father, Shannon Griffith.

Griffith's father, also the football coach at D-III Manchester University, posted a series of updates on Twitter to confirm the status of the Hoosiers' wide receiver. 

"My family needs all the players we can for our son Isaac who is in critical condition following a water accident involving a rip current," Griffith wrote. "My wife and I are boarding a plane to Sarasota to be by his side our faith in God is our strength. His condition is stable but still critical at this point in a medically induced coma to allow his lungs to heal."

Indiana released an official statement on Tuesday to confirm the news and show support for Griffith and his family. 

"We are aware of Isaac Griffith's condition. Our prayers are with Isaac and his family and we ask Hoosier Nation to keep the Griffith family in their thoughts."

Shannon Griffith returned to Twitter on Tuesday morning to offer another update.
