In what has become a complete disaster for injuries, Alex Flanagan of the NFL Network reported that Cleveland Browns defensive end Desmond Bryant has been taken to the hospital with shortness of breath. The move has been described as precautionary. Hopefully Bryant is okay but the Browns are certainly thin without him as they were already thin along the defensive line and not having him certainly takes away an extremely big player in terms of impact. This game has had players from both teams falling left and right. First, with what appears to be a disaster with Brian Hoyer’s right knee, then with Chris Ogbannaya suffering a concussion for the Browns.
The Buffalo Bills have suffered injuries as well with Stevie Johnson going out with a back injury and then with their quarterback E.J. Manuel suffering a knee injury in his own right. He tried as best as he could to work through it on the sideline jogging, running in place and going on the bike, but ultimately went to the locker room. All of this happened before the end of the third quarter.
