Cleveland Browns defensive end Chad Thomas has feeling and movement in his extremities following a scary injury during Monday’s practice.

Head coach Freddie Kitchens said Thomas is moving his arms and legs and was taken for testing as a precaution.

“He’s at the hospital getting further testing, but he’s moving all of his extremities,” Browns coach Freddie Kitchens said after practice. “It was just precautionary. Just making sure everything is OK. Any time something happens like a stinger or anything dealing with any issues like that, you want to be more cautious than anything and that’s what we’re doing.”

The 23-year-old was immobilized on a stretcher in full equipment and carted off the field after suffering an apparent neck injury.

He was taken to University Hospitals in Cleveland for further evaluation and testing.

Thomas, a third-round pick in 2018 out of Miami, appeared in four games as a rookie last season.
