Ryan Miller, a five-time letterman at the University of Colorado and a member of the 2006 Columbine Rebels’ 5A state championship team, suffered a concussion during the third practice of the week at the Cleveland Browns’ training camp on July 27, the Cleveland Plain Dealer and Cleveland Browns reported.
The 6-foot-7, 320-pound offensive lineman suffered the injury during a one-on-one blocking drill in the team’s indoor field house, the report said. He lay motionless on the field for several minutes before being transported by ambulance to the hospital, the Cleveland Plain Dealer and Cleveland Browns reported. He has been released.
“Humbled by all the prayers and kind thoughts,” Miller wrote on his Twitter account Sunday evening. “Recovering more and more each day en route to (a) return to the field.”
Miller was drafted in the fifth round —160th selection overall — of the 2012 NFL Draft by Cleveland. Ironically, the pick came from the Denver Broncos in a 2010 trade that also sent a 2011 sixth-round pick and running back Peyton Hillis to the Browns for quarterback Brady Quinn.
The 24-year-old Miller signed a four-year contract with Cleveland last year worth $2.279 million, which included a $178,532 signing bonus. He played in eight games during his rookie season.
