St. Charles North sophomore football player Aidan Carlson was transferred out of the intensive care unit at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge Wednesday, his uncle, Sean Peters, announced.

Carlson is “already making some encouraging strides in his recovery,” Peters wrote in an update on a GoFundMe page he established to support the Carlson family. “He has good moments, tough moments and some sad moments. He has a super tough road ahead of him but he has shown courage and resilience in every phase of his injury so far.”

Carlson, 15, suffered a severe brain injury last Friday during the sophomore game at St. Charles East. He played the entire game and left the field with no visible signs of injury but later fell unconscious in the parking lot on the way to the locker room, multiple sources close to the situation said.

The running back/linebacker was taken by ambulance to Delnor Hospital in Geneva and airlifted to Advocate Lutheran General, where he underwent emergency neurosurgery.

Carlson underwent multiple procedures and remained in a medically induced coma until he was taken out of it and awoke Monday evening.
