UPDATE: S. Miss walk-on punter suffers an "irrecoverable injury"

Hattiesburg, MS (WDAM) Southern Miss freshman walk-on punter Peter Wilkes sustained an injury as a result of a gun accident. The university has retracted its earlier statement that Wilkes passed away from a gun shot wound, saying now that he has suffered an irrecoverable injury.

Wilkes was at his home in Union City, Tennessee for fall break when the accident occurred because he was not traveling with the team to Louisville for Saturdays game.
