St. Louis Browns Posted November 11, 2010 Report Share Posted November 11, 2010 Very scary...hopefully he is alright. http://www.cleveland.com/browns/index.ssf/...marcus_ben.html BEREA, Ohio -- Browns linebacker Marcus Benard collapsed to the floor in the locker room today and trainers rushed to tend to him. An ambulance was called and he was taken to a nearby hospital for observation at 12:25 today. He was sitting up and conscious as he was wheeled on the stretcher into the ambulance. Browns spokesman Neal Gulkis said Benard was stable and alert and was taken to a local hospital for further testing. Gulkis would not name the hospital. Benard was sitting on a chair in front of his locker and talking on a cellphone when he rolled to the ground. Teammates were unsure what happened. After a few seconds, linebacker Matt Roth rushed to the trainer's room to get help. Benard never lost consciousness lying on the ground. The incident occurred just before players took the field for practice with media finishing up interviews. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
