PITTSBURGH (AP) -Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Andre Frazier was carted off the field on a stretcher with a spine injury after being hit while covering the opening kickoff of Monday night's game against Baltimore.
Frazier was running down the field when he was blocked by Haruki Nakamura of the Ravens and went down to the turf. Both Frazier and Nakamura are former University of Cincinnati players.
Frazier was moving his legs and at least one hand while trainers, as a precautionary move, removed his facemask before he was taken off the field.
This is Frazier's second stay with the Steelers after originally signing with them as a free agent in 2005. That season, he injured his right leg during the AFC championship game in Denver and missed the Super Bowl two weeks later. He also played briefly for the Bengals in 2006, but returned to the Steelers last year.
