Wide receiver Tyrie Cleveland was carted off the field on a stretcher during the third quarter after going to the ground awkwardly on an incomplete pass from quarterback Tanner McKee. He was down on the field for several minutes being looked at by the medical staff before he was put on the stretcher and eventually carted off of the field.
Luckily, the Eagles gave an encouraging update to note that the receiver does have movement in all of his extremities.
Later in the second half, defensive lineman Moro Ojomo was also carted off with a neck injury after he was awkwardly struck in the neck area by a teammate while they were trying to bring down Browns backup quarterback Kellen Mond.
The Eagles confirmed he suffered a neck injury but also had “movement in all of his extremities.”
Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni says that while he hasn’t spoken to doctors, it sounds like Cleveland and Ojomo are moving around.
“Your heart goes out to them first and foremost, and you just think about your teammate,” said Eagles quarterback Marcus Mariota.
“We play a game and it’s a blessing to play a game, but when these situations get like that, it is scary.”
Cleveland began his NFL career as a seventh-round draft choice of the Broncos back in 2020 out of Florida. He appeared in 23 games for Denver and would be waived by the Broncos in mid-November of last season. He eventually signed onto the Eagles practice squad throughout their playoff run.
Ojomo was the Eagles’ seventh-round pick this year after playing collegiately at Texas, where he recorded 95 tackles and 13.5 sacks.
The Eagles’ final preseason game comes next Thursday when they host the Colts.
