Raiders' Trent Brown is hospitalized 'because a pregame IV caused air to enter his bloodstream' days after recovering from COVID-19

 After recently working his way back from a COVID-19 infection, Las Vegas Raiders tackle Trent Brown was hospitalized prior to Sunday's game in Cleveland when a pregame IV caused air to enter his bloodstream. 

A person with knowledge of Brown's status says he did not travel home with the team Sunday so that he could take more tests. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the team hadn't announced an update on Brown's status.

NFL Network was the first to report Brown's IV mishap. Coach Jon Gruden wouldn't get into any details of Brown's status after the game other than to say he was being evaluated and that 'everything is OK.'

Brown was supposed to return to action this week after missing one game following a positive test for the coronavirus. 

He was activated from the COVID-19 list on Friday and practiced that day. He was set to play before the team said he 'felt ill' before the game and was deactivated.


'I got a little scared for Trent today,' quarterback Derek Carr said. 'I thought `Man, I hope he is OK.´ We had no clue what was happening. All of a sudden, we came in this morning and they are wheeling him out and I was trying to figure out what was going on. It was crazy. As a team, we prayed for him. We made sure he was OK and his family was OK because I am sure they were scared to death, too.'

Brown signed a four-year, $66 million contract with the Raiders before the 2019 season. He has dealt with several injuries, the positive coronavirus test and this latest mishap and has been able to play at least 10 snaps in only 11 of 23 games with the team.
