He was taken to the locker room and ruled out for the rest of the game about 30 minutes later. Some thought that he may have injured his shoulder based on how he hit the ground, but it appears that was not the nature of the problem.
BC head coach Steve Addazio said after the team’s 27-7 loss that Brown had been hospitalized with an internal injury. That was all Addazio would allow.

“I don’t think it’s appropriate for me to comment on something that I’m not sure … where his parents … I’m not sure. It’s an internal deal. I know he’s in the hospital. I need to get my arms around that when I walk out of here,” Addazio said.
Brown was 2/3 for 6 yards in the game. EJ Perry came in for him and went 12/21 for 98 yards. Brown entered the game with 16 touchdowns and just five interceptions on the season, four coming in one game.
