"We are deeply saddened to hear of the incident which occurred Sunday evening, and we are encouraged to know that he is now in stable condition and on the road to recovery. 'Big Papi' is a true and dear friend to the entire Foxwoods Resort Casino team and the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation, and we are sending him strength, resiliency and love."
