Cincinnati freshman receiver injured in crash is released from rehab center

A receiver from Florida who was severely injured in a traffic accident has been released from a rehabilitation center and visited his Cincinnati teammates.

Freshman Mark Barr of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., is making steady progress in his recovery. Coach Tommy Tuberville said on Tuesday that he's got months of healing still ahead.

Freshman offensive lineman Ben Flick of Hamilton, Ohio, was killed in the one-vehicle accident Sept. 21 after a 14-0 win over Miami University in Oxford. The driver — an 18-year-old Miami student — also died.

Barr and receiver Javon Harrison, from suburban Dayton, were passengers. Harrison was treated and released.

The three players were redshirting and didn't travel with the team. They had attended the game on their own and were heading back to Cincinnati.
