INGLEWOOD, CALIF. — Browns rookie linebacker Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah suffered a throat contusion in Sunday’s 47-42 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers and was taken to a hospital near SoFi Stadium, a team spokesman said.
The Browns sent Owusu-Koramoah to the hospital as a precaution and for further evaluation, the spokesman said.
A second-round pick in this year’s draft, Owusu-Koramoah had been hit in the throat during the game. He played in the fourth quarter.
The Browns (3-2) had a bunch of players suffer injuries in their shootout loss to the Chargers (4-1).

Williams injured the same shoulder in which he suffered nerve damage last year in a training camp practice. He missed the entire 2020 season with the injury.
Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow was also taken to the hospital Sunday for a possible throat contusion.
