Denver WR Cliff Russell was taken off the field on a stretcher after a big collision on a kickoff against the Chiefs.
Russell suffered a sprained neck, but was released from the hospital following examination and accompanied the team on its charter flight back to Denver.
Russell was covering a kickoff in the fourth quarter off a 33-19 loss to the Chiefs, when he lowered his head and ran right into Kansas City’s wedge. He was on the ground, with trainers and teammates surrounding him until a stretcher was brought out to take him off the field.
Russell waved his left hand from the stretcher as he was being taken off.
