Defensive end Isaac Sopoaga said he has been unable to contact family members in his native American Samoa since it was hit by a tsunami this week. He does know, however, that some are in the hospital.
"There's a couple family members were injured," he said, though he was reluctant to expand on the topic. "Other than that, everybody is OK. There is no (telephone) line service. There's no way for me to get a hold of them."
Sopoaga was born on American Samoa and spent his formative years there.
