Update: Marcus Benard's hand, not arm, broken

According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Plain Dealer, Browns defensive end Marcus Benard broke his hand, not his arm, in a motorcycle accident today.

A team spokesman told Cabot that Benard is alert but resting comfortably in the hospital.

Depending on the severity, having a broken hand is a much better diagnosis for Benard than a broken arm. Several players in the past have played with a broken hand, wrapped like a club.
