The IU football player who nearly drowned on Spring Break is now out of his medically-induced coma.

Wide Receiver Isaac Griffith has been hospitalized since Monday when he got caught in a rip current near Sarasota, Fla. On Saturday, his father tweeted, "Doctors said to get out of bed, walk around and get outside. The oxygen has been turned off and he is breathing on his own."

His father also wrote that Isaac was able to eat breakfast Saturday morning, and was laughing and smiling with family.
