As if things couldn’t get worse for the Browns, they lost their only real playmaker, wide receiver Josh Cribbs on a final meaningless offensive play of Monday night’s 16-0 shutout loss to the Ravens at home. Cribbs laid motionless on the field following the game and was placed on a stretcher and taken to a hospital.
Cribbs caught a pass from Brady Quinn on the final play and lateraled to Robert Royal. Following the pitch, Cribbs was hit hard under the helmet by nose tackle Brandon McKinney. As Cribbs was on the field, players from both teams knelt in prayer around him.
After he was treated by Cleveland trainers, he was put on a stretcher and driven to the locker room. Cribbs was taken to a local hospital. There was no immediate word on his condition.
