Browns RB Carlos Hyde playing game while awaiting birth of child

CLEVELAND — Cleveland Browns’ running back Carlos Hyde is having an exciting 28th birthday. He’s playing  in Thursday night’s football game against the New York Jets while awaiting the birth of his child.

NFL Reporter Omar Ruiz announced via Twitter that Hyde was expecting the birth of his child.  Ruiz reports that labor was induced Wednesday night.

Shortly after, Ruiz provided a baby watch update, saying “Baby watch continues, Carlos Hyde has arrived. He’s stretching, but I’m told the baby has yet to arrive.”

September 20, 2018 may be a special day for the Hyde family. Not only could Hyde be celebrating a joint-birthday with his future child, but, if the Browns win tonight, he will also be celebrating the team’s first win in over 630 days.
