Ruiz further reported that Hyde was expected to head to the stadium straight from the hospital after the baby’s birth in time to play.
According to a couple of team sources, #Browns RB Carlos Hyde is expecting the birth of his child any minute now. He’s expected to come straight to the stadium from hospital in time to play. I’m told labor was induced last night, so a potentially long & joyful day for the Hydes.

Hyde has been the Browns’ leading rusher this season with 105 yards and two touchdowns on 38 carries this season.
On top of the excitement of the child birth process, the baby would share Hyde’s Sept. 20 birthday if born on Thursday.
