SOUTH BEND, IND. (AP) - Notre Dame tight end Mike Ragone has been released from a hospital after spending the night to recover from heat illness suffered at practice.

Ragone was treated by a team doctor and trainer who lowered his body temperature at the team’s facility in South Bend, Ind., following Wednesday’s practice. He was taken to the hospital after that for observation.

Ragone missed practice Thursday and a team spokesman says it’s not certain when he might be back on the field. The Irish have two practices Friday during what has been a hot first week of preseason drills.

Ragone, a senior from Camden, N.J., started seven games last season and made six catches for 60 yards with a long play of 30 yards.
