Police in Mankato are asking for the public's help to learn more about an assault that left a former Minnesota State football player in critical condition and a former Minnesota Gopher quarterback charged.

Philip Nelson, 20, is charged with one count of first-degree assault and one count of third-degree assault. He was released from the Blue Earth County jail Monday night. He left with a towel over his head and decline to comment.

Authorities say Nelson kicked 24-year-old Isaac Dallas Kolstad in the head after another man punched and knocked him to the ground early Sunday morning in downtown Mankato.
