All of us here at Dawg Pound Daily hope it was just a precautionary measure because he was feeling a little under the weather and the team doctors just wanted to make sure it was nothing serious.
As a youngster, I had the opportunity to spend some time on the Browns sideline, and one of my fondest memories growing up was having a little sideline catch with Ozzie before a Baltimore Colts game in 1983.
He was one of the nicest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting, and I sincerely hope Ozzie is okay and wish him a speedy recovery!!!
