1 Missing Boater Rescued; 2 NFL Players Not Found
CLEARWATER, FL — The Coast Guard says a missing boater has been found clinging to an overturned boat that belongs to Oakland Raiders linebacker Marquis Cooper.
The Coast Guard says former University of South Florida player Nick Schuyler was rescued Monday off the coast of Florida.
The Coast Guard says Cooper, Detroit Lions free agent Corey Smith and another former USF player, William Bleakley, remain missing.
TV footage shows Schuyler being helped from a Coast Guard helicopter at Tampa General Hospital. He appeared conscious and talking.
The Coast Guard had been searching for the four men since they were reported missing early Sunday morning, one day after they left on a fishing trip.
