Cleveland Browns defensive end Marcus Benard has reportedly been transported to Metro General Hospital on Monday afternoon following a motorcycle accident which occurred on I-71 near W. 65th street.
Benard had reportedly been riding a Can-Am Spyder at a high rate of speed and hit a wall. Per John Telich of Cleveland’s Fox 8, he has suffered injuries deemed serious but not life-threatening which include broken ribs, a broken wrist and “tons” of road rash.
It is assumed that Benard, last season’s sack leader, was leaving Berea following the day’s practice. More on this as the story develops.
(Update: It appears that Benard has been transferred to The Cleveland Clinic where he will receive treatment for a broken hand. He will remain in the clinic overnight.)
