CLEVELAND (AP) -New York Jets tight end A.J. Schable was taken from the field on a stretcher and hospitalized Thursday night after a head-to-head hit in a preseason game against the Cleveland Browns.
The Jets were awaiting results of tests, but early reports from the hospital were positive.
``He does have movement in his arms and legs,'' coach Eric Mangini said after New York's 24-20 win. ``That is extremely encouraging.''
Schable, in his second season with the Jets, was knocked backward by Cleveland offensive lineman Cliff Louis while trying to make a tackle on a kickoff return. He remained on the field in a curled up position until trainers turned him on his back, then gently placed him on a stretcher.
The entire Jets team went on the field as Schable was immobilized and carted away with 12 minutes remaining in the preseason game. Schable gave a thumbs-up with his left hand as he was being wheeled off the field.
