Denver Broncos left tackle Russell Okung was stretchered to an ambulance and administered an IV following Thursday’s loss to the San Diego Chargers, according to multiple reports.
The team indicated Okung had concussion-like symptoms, and overheating may have been part of the issue as well, Mike Klis of 9News reports.
Okung was able to stand in the locker room and address reporters, but was then helped to the shower and later to an ambulance, Jeff Legwold of ESPN reports.
The veteran offensive tackle signed with the Broncos in the offseason after six seasons with the Seattle Seahawks. He acted as his own agent, and the deal he signed offers little guaranteed money in case of injury.
Okung was flagged for an ill-timed hold during the fourth quarter of Thursday’s game, wiping out a C.J. Anderson touchdown as the Broncos looked poised to complete an improbable comeback.
