Browns cornerback Troy Hill was released from a Boston-area hospital Monday morning and will return to Cleveland after suffering a cervical neck sprain in Sunday’s game.

Hill, 30, was stretchered off the field late in the fourth quarter of Cleveland’s 45-7 loss to the New England Patriots after trying to tackle wide receiver Jakobi Meyers. He was hit in the head on the play. Hill was able to maintain movement in his extremities.

Hill was credited with five tackles in 33 defensive snaps against the Patriots. His status for next week’s game against Detroit is unknown.

On the season, Hill has 41 tackles — four for loss — to go with two sacks and one pass defensed in 10 games (four starts). He did not start Sunday’s game.

He signed a two-year, $9 million contract with the Browns in March.
