“Not an ideal IG story from your starting Left Tackle 12 hours before kickoff against a Top 10 team,” ESPN Baton Rouge reporter Matt Moscona tweeted.

On Saturday, head coach Brian Kelly provided some additional information regarding Campbell’s condition.

“Campbell had an “episode,” according to Kelly, and the good news is early tests have shown it’s not anything life threatening. Leah Vann of The Advocate added that dehydration might’ve been a factor, among other things,” On3 reported.

“Kelly added that an ambulance came out on the field to take Campbell to the hospital after receiving treatment from EMS, according to Shea Dixon of On3’s The Bengal Tiger,” the outlet added.
