Boise State's Ian Johnson, hospitalized.

Ian Johnson was hospitalized with a partially collapsed left lung after Boise State's 23-20 win on Saturday vs San Jose State. Johnson is the nation's leader in touchdows and second in rushing yards. He isn't expected to leave O'Connor Hospital in San Jose, California until Tuesday, the school said. His status for Saturday's home finale against Utah State is still uncertain.

"They're going slow as heck to make sure everything is good," Boise State head coach Chris Petersen said Monday morning. "Nothing has really changed since he went in there."

After the game, Johnson declined to speak to reporters and was taken to the hospital for evaluation. He didn't accompany the team back to Boise.

Petersen said when he got into the locker room, Johnson didn't feel well and was complaining of back pain. When he was taken to the hospital it was originally to make sure it was not an injury to his spleen.

Ian Johnson's numbers this season are:

222 att (5th) 1,466 yds (2nd) 21 TDs (1st)
