DENVER (AP) -Denver Broncos defensive back Karl Paymah sustained a concussion in the second quarter Thursday night when he dipped his head and took a knee to the helmet from Arizona Cardinals running back Steve Baylark.
Paymah lay on the field for five minutes before being strapped to a backboard and carted off the field to an ambulance. The Broncos said he was taken to a hospital as a precaution.
The Broncos lost linebacker Warrick Holdman for the season when he injured his spinal cord on a similar play early in training camp.
Broncos tight end Stephen Alexander also was hurt in the first half Thursday night. He was taken out of the game after injuring his lower left leg when he dived to take out two defenders and spring wide receiver Domenik Hixon on a 43-yard reverse.
