Titans rookie lineman Sebastian Tretola was reportedly shot overnight in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

According to local media, Tretola was shot in the ankle around 2:00 a.m. in a parking lot near the Sterling District Apartments near Dickson Street.

The suspected gunman is at large.

The Titans issued the following statement Sunday saying the injury was minor: “We are aware of the reports that Sebastian (Tretola) received treatment for a wound when he was grazed by a bullet. He has been released from the hospital and is thankful for only a minor injury.”

Tretola was drafted by the Titans in the sixth round, 193rd overall, in the 2016 NFL Draft. He played college football at Arkansas, Iowa Western, and Nevada.

On May 10, 2017, Tretola and fellow teammate Tajae Sharpe were named as defendants in a federal civil Lawsuit that alleges the teammates were at a Nashville bar watching the 2017 NFL Draft. Dante R. Satterfield, the plaintiff in the lawsuit, claims he told Sharpe he’d probably lose playing time as a result of the Titan’s selecting wide receiver Corey Davis in the first round.

The report alleges Sharpe responded by challenging him to a fight in a back alley and was accompanied by Tretola as a lookout. Satterfield claims he was knocked unconscious for 12 hours, suffered a concussion, and facial fractures from the incident and is suing for $500,000 in damages.
