The Cleveland Browns are taking on the New York Jets in Week 17 of the NFL season. With wide receiver Amari Cooper sidelined with an injury, Elijah Moore took over as the No. 1 wideout. In the second quarter of Thursday night’s game, Moore hit the ground hard after a reception and stayed down. He was eventually able to leave the field with trainers.

Moore has had a quiet but productive season with Cleveland. He has played in 15 games and has brought in 54 of his 98 targets for 579 yards and a touchdown. Before getting hurt on Thursday, Moore had five receptions for 61 yards and a touchdown. This was a revenge game for Moore who was traded from New York to Cleveland last season.
