The Cleveland Browns lost the game to the New England Patriots, and this may not be the only loss for the night. One of their cornerbacks suffered a neck injury and the situation didn’t look good for the team. Patriots head coach Bill Belichick sent his thoughts and prayers to Browns cornerback Troy Hill.
Hill suffered his injury in the fourth quarter of the Patriots’ 45-7 win over the Browns. The talented player had to be taken off the field and admitted to a hospital.
Bill Belichick sends message to Troy Hill
The cornerback tried to tackle Patriots wide receiver Jakobi Meyers. He missed and hit his head on the receiver’s midsection. Meyers ran to the end zone to deliver his first touchdown. Of course, the celebration ended too soon due to Hill’s injury. Hill was lying on the field for a long time. Patriots and Browns players formed a semi-circle around the cornerback. Trainers brought a body board, but put Hill on a stretcher. The cornerback had movement in his extremities and everyone breathed a sigh of relief.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with Troy Hill… Hopefully he’s OK,” Belichick said in his postgame press conference. “It’s always something none of us ever want to see. He was here very briefly. Hope that he’s okay.”
Hill has 36 combined tackles and three quarterback hits in the regular season. He is in his seventh season in the NFL. Hill had five tackles before sustaining his injury.
When it comes to Meyers, he had his first touchdown and he was a great help for the team. The receiver had four passes for 49 yards. Cleveland is going home with a loss and the Patriots have continued their winning trend.
Head coach Belichick likes the way things roll for his team. He is already planning the game against his next opponent. This win will motivate Patriots players to do even better next time. They have a good winning streak and experts made great predictions about the team. Are they making the playoffs this season? You better bet on Belichick and his squad.
