LSU freshman defensive tackle Trey Lealaimatafao suffered a serious arm injury after punching a glass window in the team weight room, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

Lealaimatafao is a 6-foot, 300-pound four-star recruit from San Antonio, Texas. His status for the upcoming season is unknown. 

According to the report, Lealaimatafao was upset about a disagreement with his girlfriend and punched the window between the weight room and indoor practice facility. 

Lealaimatafao was taken to a hospital Monday to treat a deep cut to his arm, according to LSU spokesman Michael Bonnette.
