Cleveland Browns’ Erving diagnosed with pulmonary contusion, remains hospitalized
CLEVELAND– Cleveland center Cameron Erving was taken to the hospital during the Browns game against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.
An ambulance took Erving from FirstEnergy Stadium to University Hospitals towards the end of the game as a precaution, according to the team.
“Erving was experiencing cramps toward the end of the game, as well as discomfort in his chest and ribs,” a Browns spokesman said.
After testing, the center was diagnosed with a pulmonary contusion and will remain in the hospital overnight.
“I think the first part was some cramps in his back. Those things happen. I didn’t hear the second part of it when he went out there at the end. I was trying to focus on making sure we got the right call. I am sure I will find out here exactly what is going on with Cam,” head coach Hue Jackson told reporters after the game.
The Browns drafted Erving as the 19th overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. This season, he transitioned from guard to center to replace Pro-Bowler Alex Mack, who left in free agency.
Cleveland was ahead of the Ravens 20-0 in the first quarter. But Baltimore rallied to win 25-20.
