A Mankato, Minnesota native who recently transferred to Rutgers may be facing third-degree assault charges back in his hometown.

Rutgers quarterback Philip Nelson started 16 games for the Minnesota Gophers during two seasons with the team. He transferred to Rutgers in January.

NJ.com reported that police arrested Nelson for allegedly assaulting 24-year old Isaac Kolstad, a linebacker for Minnesota State-Mankato. Kolstad was found in an intersection at 2:09 a.m. Sunday, and is listed in critical condition in a Mankato hospital.

According to Bleacher Report, the 20-year old Nelson allegedly kicked Kolstad twice in the head and knocked him unconscious. Police believe another man may have been involved in the attack. Nelson has already been charged with underage alcohol consumption.
