Las Vegas Raiders right tackle Trent Brown remained hospitalized in Cleveland on Monday, a day after he had an episode taking a pregame IV in the team’s locker room at FirstEnergy Stadium, a source confirmed to ESPN.
“Very glad to report he is up and seems to be doing well,” Raiders coach Jon Gruden said Monday in his weekly Zoom media conference. “We’re awaiting the results of some of the extensive tests that they did today and yesterday. I don’t have anything to report other than he had an issue.”
NFL Network reported that air entered Brown’s bloodstream and that he required immediate medical attention.
“I want to really thank our medical staff. What a job they did in an emergency situation, and we’re just happy he’s up and around, and once we get the official word as to what’s wrong with Trent we’ll let you know,” Gruden said.
Brown, who signed a four-year, $66 million contract with the Raiders in 2019, had just come off the team’s reserve/COVID-19 list on Friday and was slated to start for Las Vegas against the Browns.
Raiders quarterback Derek Carr described a scary scene in the pregame locker room.
“Honestly, I’m human, I got a little scared for Trent,” Carr said after the Raiders’ 16-6 win over the Browns. “I was like, ‘Man, I hope he’s OK.’ We had no clue what was happening.
