GEORGETOWN, Ky. (AP) -Tight end Sean Mulcahy hurt his neck during the Cincinnati Bengals' practice Monday and was taken off the field in an ambulance as a precaution.
A team spokesman said Mulcahy had full movement in his arms and legs and was joking with medical personnel at the Kentucky Trauma Center in nearby Lexington.
"He's fine," coach Marvin Lewis said. "It's football, and unfortunately those things happen out here all the time."
The 6-foot-5, 260-pound tight end has spent time in training camps with St. Louis, Atlanta and Carolina, but has never appeared in an NFL game. The Bengals signed the first-year player in the offseason.
Practice was stopped after Mulcahy hurt his neck. He lay on the field for about 15 minutes before the ambulance arrived. Lewis then gathered the team and explained the situation before practice resumed.
