Cribbs Taken to Hospital Following Scary Hit on Final Play

Ravens Browns Football
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.

    If it wasn’t over, it is now.

    Hook and lateral on the last play when you are down 16 and seconds away from being 1-8? How much are we paying the moron who called this strategic gem?

    This is just the kind of play I’ve been fearing for ages with Cribbs. I’m always saying we need to figure out a way to not have to use him on offense and let him just work his magic in the return game. If he’s out for any appreciable amount of time, this just kills our one good dimension: our special teams. Here’s an idea. Next time our so-called braintrust wants to call a hook and ladder whoever’s responsible for calling it can suit up and run it out there himself. That’ll be must less a loss when he gets jacked up by an opposing nose tackle.
