NFL

Second-year Cleveland Browns offensive guard Ryan Miller is “doing okay” after laying motionless on the field for nearly 10 minutes following a training camp injury, the team announced on Twitter.

Miller was hurt during individual drills inside the Browns field house, according to The Cleveland Plain Dealer‘s Mary Kay Cabot. He was immobilized on a board and then carted to an ambulance that rushed him to a local hospital.

From The Plain Dealer:

Teammates huddled around the player, took a knee and prayed. The music ceased and all were quiet.

About 10 minutes after the player was rushed to a local hospital, a team spokesman said he was awake, alert and moving all four extremities.

The team initially asked that Miller not be identified until his family was notified of the incident.

The 24-year-old attended Columbine High School in Littleton, Colo., before playing collegiate at the University of Colorado, where was a four-year starter and 2011 second-team All-American, gaining an extra year of eligibility after missing much of 2008 with a broken fibula.

Cleveland drafted Miller in the sixth round in 2012.

Miller one of three players who suffered a serious injury at training camp on Saturday, as the Eagles’ Jeremy Maclin tore his ACL and the Ravens’ Dennis Pitta dislocated his hip.
