Cleveland Browns safety Jordan Poyer was hospitalized with a lacerated kidney following a blindside hit from running back Antonio Andrews during Sunday's game against the Tennessee Titans. Andrews posted the video of the hit to his Instagram account (@aandrews26) to which Poyer took offense.

Head coach Hue Jackson told media that he does not believe the hit was delivered with intent.
“I think you guys know how I feel about this. It is football. I don’t think… You do, you have an assignment and you have a guy to block. The guy is clearly in your sights and you see him, whether he is 25 [yards away]. I don’t think the player was trying to intentionally hurt him. I think he was trying to do his job, which was block him, and he did. He blocked him. He might have led with his head a little bit, but that is what he got flagged for. That is part of this game.”
Poyer was placed on injured reserve Tuesday. He is not expected to return to the team this season.
