Poyer released from hospital, isn’t pleased that Andrews celebrated vicious hit online


Browns safety Jordan Poyer has been released from a Nashville hospital and was on his way home Tuesday after suffering a lacerated kidney from a big hit by Titans running back Antonio Andrews.

Andrews posted video of the play on his Instagram account, and Poyer took to his own social media account Tuesday to show his displeasure with the post, writing that it was “wild” to him that Andrews seemed to be celebrating a play on which Poyer was seriously injured.

Andrews tagged his video, “Relentless.” Poyer wrote that he wasn’t complaining about the hit but seemed surprised that Andrews posted about it.

Andrews was flagged 15 yards for an illegal blindside block. Titans Coach Mike Mularkey told reporters he thought Andrews delivered a clean hit and did not intend to injure Poyer.

The Browns placed Poyer on injured reserve Tuesday, the same day he was sent home after being hospitalized for two nights. Poyer tweeted that he wasn’t medically cleared to fly and had to make an eight-hour drive back to Cleveland.
