CLEVELAND -- Cleveland Browns center Cameron Erving will be evaluated on a weekly basis to determine his ability to return to the field after suffering a pulmonary contusion in Sunday’s 25-20 loss to the Baltimore Ravens at FirstEnergy Stadium Sunday.
“Cameron Erving, who suffered a pulmonary contusion in yesterday's game against the Ravens, was released from the hospital this morning,” the Browns said in a statement. “His return-to-play status will be evaluated on a week-to-week basis.”
Late in the loss to the Ravens, Erving looked to be in distress while lying on the field in front of the Browns’ sideline after blocking for running back Duke Johnson Jr. on a short pass play to the right side of the formation.
Erving was helped off the field, and in the minutes following the game, a stretcher was taken into the Browns’ locker room.
Erving was taken from the stadium to University Hospitals by ambulance after battling cramps and “discomfort in his chest and ribs” during the game. It was later announced by the Browns that Erving suffered a pulmonary contusion and remained in the hospital overnight for observation.
