Russell Returns To Denver With Team

By  | 

Denver wide receiver Clifford Russell was immobilized and taken off the field on a stretcher after spraining his neck in the fourth quarter yesterday against Kansas City.

Russell was hurt on Kansas City's return of the kickoff following a Denver touchdown.

He lifted his left hand and waved as he was taken off the field for examination.

The team says Russell was taken to a hospital for examination before accompanying the team on its charter flight back to Denver yesterday.
