Reports from camp indicate that today’s indoor session due to weather had a frightening moment for players and media alike. Browns’ reserve second-year offensive lineman Ryan Miller suffered a concussion. Media reports indicated earlier that it was an offensive lineman and not much else because of the Browns wanting to notify Miller’s family. This from ESPN Cleveland’s Tony Grossi gives a little more insight to the situation.
“Practice screeched to a halt for several minutes when backup offensive lineman Ryan Miller suffered a concussion in a one-on-one blocking drill. Miller lost consciousness for a while, a source said.
As Miller lay on the fieldhouse floor (practice was moved indoors because of wet conditions), players surrounded him and said prayers silently. Eventually, Miller moved his arms and legs and was carried to an ambulance on a medical cart and transplanted to a local hospital. He was then transplanted to Cleveland Clinic main campus.”
Miller was drafted in the sixth round of the 2012 NFL Draft out of Colorado and played sparingly in eight games for the Browns. Miller according to the Browns is now resting comfortably and will likely be released this evening.
