The Las Vegas Raiders reportedly had a scary situation with offensive tackle Trent Brown earlier on Sunday.
Brown, the team’s starting offensive tackle, did not play in today’s game against the Cleveland Browns. He was reportedly out with an illness.
“Trent Brown felt ill before the game, resulting in his deactivation,” the Raiders said in a statement before the game. “He did not exhibit any COVID-related symptoms.”
Brown, 27, signed a four-year, $66 million contract with the Raiders in 2019. He tested positive for COVID-19 two weeks ago.
NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport has since shared some scary details from today’s situation. Brown was reportedly hospitalized.
“Trent Brown was hospitalized today after a mishap with his pre-game IV that caused air to enter his bloodstream and required immediate medical attention, per me and Tom Pelisserro. Brown will stay overnight for further tests,” he reported.
