    Actor and comedian Bill Murray made a surprise visit to an injured Cal rugby player last weekend.

    Murray showed up at a Colorado hospital where partially paralyzed Cal athlete Robert Paylor is undergoing rehab. Murray was photographed holding a stethoscope up to Paylor's head.

    Paylor was paralyzed during a national championship rugby match at Santa Clara University on May 6. The sophomore is paralyzed below the chest and has limited motion in his arms due to a spinal injury.

    Murray is currently in Napa to perform a music project Thursday at Festival Napa Valley.
