Browns safety Poyer placed on IR


Browns safety Jordan Poyer has been discharged from the hospital after one of his kidneys was lacerated by a vicious hit.

Poyer was taken to Nashville’s Saint Thomas Midtown Hospital by ambulance during Sunday’s 28-26 loss to the Tennessee Titans. The Browns said the 25-year-old Poyer, in his fourth season with the team, will return to Cleveland.

Poyer was injured on a nasty blindside hit by Titans running back Antonio Andrews while covering a punt in the second quarter. Andrews had an unobstructed run at Poyer before delivering his violent blow, which was penalized.

Browns coach Hue Jackson does not think Andrews’ hit was malicious.

“I think he was trying to do his job, which was block him, and he did,” Jackson said. “He blocked him. He might have led with his head a little bit, but that is what he got flagged for. That is part of this game.”

Lawyer says attorney helped Penn State

state college, pa.

Penn State’s former general counsel testified Tuesday that several days before two high-ranking administrators were charged over their handling of the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal, the school’s then-president let the men’s defense lawyers review and suggest changes to a statement he later issued that voiced his full support for them.

Cynthia Baldwin told jurors about email exchanges that ensued with defense attorneys Tom Farrell and Caroline Roberto shortly before their clients were charged with perjury, failure to properly report suspected abuse and other offenses in November 2011.

Baldwin said someone at the attorney general’s office had told her the charges were coming against Gary Schultz, then the school’s vice president for business and finance, and Tim Curley, then the athletic director.
