Cleveland Browns Linebacker Marcus Benard Collapses Before Practice
Cleveland Browns linebacker, Marcus Benard collapsed today in front of his locker. The scary moment occurred at 12:25 PM today after he fell to the ground after sitting on a chair in the locker room talking on the phone. Fellow linebacker Matt Roth raced to the training room for help after seeing his teammate collapse.
Benard reportedly never lost consciousness, but he was taken to the ambulance on a stretcher. He is reported to have collapsed immediately before players took the field for practice and as media finished up interviews for the day. It is not known at this time what caused the collapse or the current status of Benard.
It’s obviously a very scary situation any time a player collapses like that and everyone obviously wishes Marcus a speedy recovery and we’re all hoping it is nothing serious.
