Buffalo football player treated for stab wound

The University at Buffalo says football player Scott Pettigrew is expected to fully recover after being stabbed in the chest over the weekend.

Buffalo police say three 22-year-old Buffalo men are facing assault and weapons charges following the incident that sent the junior linebacker to a hospital about 1:30 a.m. Sunday.

Pettigrew was released later in the morning and Bulls Coach Jeff Quinn says Monday it appears he will be fine.

Pettigrew suffered a knee injury in April and is not playing this season.
