There is hopeful news for the Lane Tech football player who collapsed during a football game earlier this month.

Drew Williams suffered an apparent seizure.

While he is still in a coma, his family says he has been taken off the critical list at Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn.

Williams needed emergency surgery to reduce swelling in his brain.

But the family says the swelling no longer threatens his life.

A website called “Drew’s Recovery Fund” is collecting donations to cover the family’s medical expenses.
