Texans rookie tight end Anthony Hill was hospitalized this week with swine flu in the first confirmed case in an NFL player this season.
Hill is the only player on the team believed to have swine flu and other players are being monitored, Texans vice president of communications Tony Wyllie said Friday.
Hill, a fourth-round pick from North Carolina State, spent two nights in the hospital and told KRIV-TV in Houston that he was released from the hospital Friday morning.
"In the beginning doctors thought it was pneumonia," Hill told the station. "It wasn't. Then (Thursday) results for swine flu came back and it was positive. I was already taking medicine for both."
