November 16, 2003

CLEVELAND (AP) _ Arizona linebacker Ray Thompson was taken from the field on a cart Sunday after spraining his neck in the third quarter of the Cardinals’ game against the Cleveland Browns.

Thompson said was he was momentarily paralyzed, but X-rays were negative.

``I went numb,″ he said following Arizona’s 44-6 loss.

Thompson, a four-year veteran, was in a pile of players trying to tackle running back James Jackson. Following the play, Thompson laid face down for several minutes before rolling over onto his back without assistance.

``At the time I didn’t want to move because I was numb,″ he said. ``But after a couple of seconds, I got my feeling back. My neck is a little sore. I am not going to rush anything, this is a serious situation.″
