A scary scene is unfolding in Cleveland, where a player was carried off the field at training camp on a stretcher, loaded into an ambulance and rushed to a local hospital.

People at the scene have described the situation on social media, saying that coaches and players looked very concerned as they circled around the fallen player and knelt in prayer. The player was on the ground for about five minutes while the medical staff tended to him before taking him to the ambulance.
