In the first-half of the game between Chelsea and Hull City, Gary Cahill and Ryan Mason had a clash of heads that left Mason on the ground for about 9 minutes. He had to replaced by David Meyler and was rushed to the hospital.
He was seen receiving oxygen before being placed in a neck brace while doctors of both teams attempted to revive him. The incident isn’t to be taken likely, as reports suggest he is suffering internal bleeding in his brain.
Speaking after the 2-0 defeat to Chelsea, Hull manager Marco Silva confirmed that Mason had been rushed to hospital: “I imagine in this moment that he will stay in hospital. I hope nothing special, nothing serious, but we’ll see,” he said.
“I don’t know (if he is awake). He doctor told me he was in the hospital and we await news.”
After the game, Gary Cahill sent his wishes to Mason.
“I was just going to meet the cross but we clashed heads and it was a massive impact,” he said.
“I know he has gone off but am just hoping everything will be OK.”
