Hyde arrived to FirstEnergy Stadium before the Browns-Jets game while still waiting for the birth of his baby.
Browns running back Carlos Hyde played an incredible game in the team's 21–17 win over the Jets while waiting for the birth of his baby Thursday.
Hyde went straight to the hospital after the victory.
Hyde finished with 23 carries for 97 yards and two touchdowns. So naturally, his touchdown celebration for the night was very on theme.
In addition to having a great game and waiting for the birth of his child, it was also Hyde's birthday.
NFL Network's Omar Ruiz reported earlier in the evening that Hyde could potentially miss the game due to the impending birth of his child. Initially, Hyde was expected to come straight to the stadium from the hospital after the birth of his baby in time to play. Labor was induced last night.
Backup running back Duke Johnson Jr. could see playing time behind Hyde.
The Browns are 1-1-1 through the first two weeks of the season. They tied 21-21 with the Steelers in Week 1 before losing 21-18 to the Saints last week.
It was the Browns' first win since December 2016.
