FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Cleveland Browns cornerback Troy Hill was taken off the field on a stretcher Sunday in the game against the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium.
Hill was injured with just over four minutes left in the game as Patriots quarterback Brian Hoyer, who was in for Mac Jones as New England had a 31-point lead, made an 11-yard touchdown pass to Jakobi Meyers.
During the play, Hill attempted to make a tackle and was injured in the process.
Medical staff rushed onto the field quickly to attend to Hill and the cart was brought out to the field.
After tending to him on the field, medical staff opted to put Hill on a stretcher and wheel him off the field. He went to the locker room for further evaluation.
Hill was taken to a local hospital with what was determined to be a neck injury for further evaluation. He reported movement in his extremities. He stayed at the hospital instead of flying home with the team.
