Infant son of Browns WR Ryan Switzer back in hospital

CLEVELAND (AP) — Cleveland Browns wide receiver Ryan Switzer said his infant son has been hospitalized
again and is undergoing a blood transfusion.
Switzer posted the latest Twitter update about Christian on Sunday, saying he’s having another
transfusion after his hemoglobin dropped overnight. Switzer said doctors need to get the boy’s blood
count up so he’s stable enough to undergo further testing.
Switzer asked his followers for prayers.
Earlier this week, the 26-year-old father posted a video thanking the public for its overwhelming
outpouring of support for Christian, who underwent surgery last week after being hospitalized for
bleeding. Switzer had said doctors still weren’t sure what was causing the bleeding.
Switzer wrote Saturday night that Christian had more "significant bleeding" and was back in the
hospital.
"We’re frustrated but more so just exhausted seeing our son suffer," Switzer wrote. "We’re
asking for prayers for the doctors as they work to find a diagnosis & strength for Christian as
he battles."
Switzer spent last season on Cleveland’s practice squad. He was with the Pittsburgh Steelers for two
seasons after being drafted by Dallas in the 2017 NFL draft out of North Carolina.
