IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

The University of Iowa settles a lawsuit from a former football player who was one of 13 players hospitalized after a team workout in 2011.  Details of the settlement with William Lowe are not known at this time.

Lowe said that coaches and trainers did not properly supervise the workout and didn't officer medical care after he and other players were in severe pain.  Lowe and 12 other players were later hospitalized and treated for exertional rhabdomyolysis, the result of breaking down and releasing proteins into the bloodstream.

The trial was scheduled to begin later this month.
