Browns LB Marcus Benard Stable And Alert

The AP is reporting that Cleveland Browns linebacker Marcus Benard collapsed in the locker room earlier today during the media interview period.

According to the report, Benard was sitting in a chair when he suddenly collapsed to the floor.  After initially believing Benard was kidding around, teammates, including fellow linerbacker Matt Roth called for team training staff.

No word on Benard's condition has been released by the Browns, though his eyes were reportedly open while being attended to.

Benard leads the Browns with 4 1/2 sacks this season.

UPDATE - Browns spokesman Neal Gulkis said Benard was stable and alert and was taken to a local hospital for further testing. Gulkis would not name the hospital.
