Howard also suffered a broken eye socket when he was forced to fight another first-year player in August as part of his initiation onto the team, according to the complaint.A university spokesman said the school is investigating, but couldnt comment further on the lawsuit.The university is aware of Mr. Howards allegations and has made all of the required external notifications in accordance with state law, Anthony de Bruyn said in an email. The university has been actively investigating these reports consistent with its obligations under the law and University policy, he said.The complaint says the hazing was done primarily by two wide receivers: Doni Dowling and David Eldridge.
