Kaseem Vauls was on the Jackson State squad in 2022.

“The doctors said he progressing they will gradually lower down his medication he on and the lower down the input of the machine he on gradually, which is a good sign. The machine is so his organs can rest and not work so hard. Then they will lower down the sedation so he can wake up on his own but that might be until day 4 on the machine. I greatly appreciate all you guys for out pour of love and prayers and phone calls and support for my son!

According to the Clarion Ledger, a cardiologist told Vaul’s father that his heart was functioning at 10-15 percent.
