BEREA, Ohio -- Browns offensive tackle Ryan Miller was being treated at the hospital after being carted off the field during practice.

Miller, who is in his second season with Cleveland, was taken to the Cleveland Clinic by ambulance. A team spokesman said Miller is "awake, alert and has movement in all four extremities." The team has not released any other information about Miller's injury or illness.

Cleveland's players, wearing shoulder pads for the first time in training camp, were doing one-on-one drills inside the team's indoor facility when Miller wound up on the turf at 4:39 p.m. It's not known if the 6-foot-7, 320-pounder was injured or collapsed.

As medical personnel rushed to Miller, the music inside the field house was turned off and several players took a knee. After Miller was immobilized and strapped to a backboard, the entire Browns team and coaching staff huddled around the player and prayed.

Miller was drafted by the Browns in the fifth round in 2012.
