It is being reported that former USA 7’s stalwart and Duke University law student, James “Guppy” Gillenwater is in the Intensive Care Unit after brain surgery that resulted from an accident while playing rugby.

During a test following a broken nose and cheekbone, blood clots were discovered in his brain that required surgery.
