Browns S Jordan Poyer was taken to the hospital in an ambulance after he took a hit from Titans RB Antonio Andrews in the second quarter of Sunday’s game, according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Poyer was evaluated in the locker room for a concussion before being transported to the hospital.

During the play, Poyer took a big blindside hit from Andrews during a punt return and immediately went down in pain.

Poyer, 25, is a former seventh-round pick of the Eagles back in 2013. He’s spent the past three years with the Browns and is in the final year of his four-year, $2.222 million contract.

Entering today’s game, Poyer has appeared in five games and recorded 36 tackles, no interceptions and two pass defenses for the Browns.
