It was a frightening moment for the Cleveland Browns when back-up offensive tackle Ryan Miller went down after a helmet to helmet hit gave him a serious concussion in a one on one drill in practice. Miller laid on the ground motionless for several minutes before being rushed to the Cleveland Clinic hospital by ambulance.
The rest of the Browns players were very concerned that Miller may have suffered a very serious career ending injury because Ryan was out on the ground and not moving any of his extremities. The music was stopped in the Browns indoor field house and players took to one knee to pray for their brother.
The good news is Miller has been released from the Cleveland Clinic this morning and he is at home recovering from a terrible concussion. The Browns spirits were lifted once they learned Miller could move his limbs.
It is the worst feeling a football player can have, standing around and watching as a teammate lays motion-less on the ground. It is scary and it happens once in a while when you are playing football. The good news is Ryan should make a full recovery.
He should be back at practice as soon as he is able to pass the concussion test. The NFL isn’t playing around with concussions and Miller will have to pass the tests before he is allowed to return to the field. Thank God the 6’7″ 320lbs Miller is going to be OK.
