EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Umpire Butch Hannah left the game against the Cleveland Browns and New York Jets after appearing to suffer and injury to his face late in the first half.

After an 8-yard run by the Browns’ Chris Ogbonnaya, it appeared Hannah made contact with Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie’s right shoulder pad as he was spotting the ball. Hannah then stumbled into Jets defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson before going down to the turf, holding his face.

Trainers from both teams checked on Hannah, who walked to the locker room under his own power.

He was not back on the field to start the second half. There was no immediate word on the nature of the injury.
