Browns Marcus Benard collapses in locker room…


Cleveland Browns linebacker Marcus Benard has been taken to a hospital after collapsing in the locker room Thursday.Benard was sitting in a chair when he suddenly fell to the carpeted floor. At first, some of his teammates, who were getting dressed for practice, thought he might have been joking before linebacker Matt Roth yelled for a trainer. Benard’s eyes were open as three members of Cleveland’s training staff checked on him.

A Browns spokesman said Benard, 25, is stable and alert, but would not elaborate. Benard was sitting up when he was wheeled out of the team’s facility on a stretcher and placed in an ambulance. He collapsed just as the 45-minute interview period was ending.

Benard leads the Browns with 4.5 sacks this season. He made Cleveland’s roster last season as an undrafted free agent from Jackson State. He has started two games this season for the Browns (3-5), who play host to the New York Jets (6-2) on Sunday.
