Here’s some good news for Cleveland Browns fans: offensive lineman Ryan Miller is doing okay and, according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, is alert and able to move his extremities. The Browns organization announced that Miller suffered a concussion at practice but is doing well and is expected to be released from the hospital later tonight.
All this comes on the heels a scary scene that occurred during training camp practice on Saturday. Although the exact details of how the event transpired aren’t clear, Miller went down during practice and had to be removed from the field in an ambulance.
Obviously, a concussion is no light or laughing matter, but it is a relief considering the initial worries about a serious neck injury. As per league policy, Miller won’t be allowed to participate in training camp or in any preseason games until he is cleared by an independent neurologist.
Our hopes and best-wishes go out to Miller and his family, and we wish him a speedy and safe recovery.
