Some potentially scary news out of Cleveland -- Browns linebacker Marcus Bernard collapsed to the ground while media were in the locker room on Thursday.
Our Browns Rapid Reporter Marty Gitlin reports that Bernard "fell out of his chair" and to the floor while media were in the Browns locker room on Thursday. Trainers rushed to examine him and the media were cleared from the room.
Bernard's has since been taken to a hospital and is "alert" and "stable" according to various reports -- an ambulance arrived to take him away from the Browns facility.
It's currently unknown what caused Bernard to faint (for lack of a better word), but it's absolutely good news that he was conscious when he was taken to the medical facilities.
