Special teams coordinator Ikaika Malloe today was discharged from the hospital after undergoing an appendectomy Wednesday night.
“I feel good,” said Malloe, who was admitted after complaining of a piercing pain on his right side.
After several medical procedures, he underwent the one-hour appendectomy Wednesday night.
He said he wanted to attend this morning’s practice, but “the doctor looked at me kind of weird.”
He said he hopes to rejoin the team tomorrow.

Work has started on Cooke/Ching Field.
New seats are being installed in Murakami Stadium.
But the most significant signs that things are getting better are the new television sets in the football waiting room and the Halloween decorations on the first floor of the athletic complex.
For nearly a year, the big television in the waiting area was broken. The area serves as a lounging room for recruits or parents waiting to meet with UH coaches. The television was out of order during recruiting season in January.
But now there are four television sets — a large one and three smaller ones — mounted on the wall.
Also, the first floor is no longer a ghost town when it comes to the Halloween decoration contest. An eloborate scene was set up in the area between Jim Donovan’s and Carl Clapp’s offices.
UH might be poor, but it’s having fun again.
And recruits can watch television.
