A University of Maryland football player was taken to a local hospital for precautionary measures after he became ill during a Tuesday workout.

According to the Baltimore Sun, Raymond Boone was taken to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore.

Boone - a redshirt freshman defensive back from Greenbelt - was released the following day, according to the school.

He tweeted on Wednesday, "I get to go home today."
