SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. (AP) - A California high school football player who suffered a traumatic brain injury during a game earlier this month is out of a medically-induced coma and his condition has been upgraded from critical to serious.

The Tribune of San Luis Obispo reported Sunday (http://bit.ly/1iEUFeL ) that 16-year-old Isaac Lindsey was moved out of intensive care and into what's called a step-down unit, where he will be continually monitored.

The Templeton High player collapsed on the sideline after coming off the field Sept. 18. He was taken to a hospital on a stretcher.

The newspaper says the boy's mother, Jenny Lindsey, wrote on social media that her son was diagnosed with a life-threatening brain injury. She says since Isaac was brought out of the coma he has recognized family members and spoken a few words.
