Ryan Switzer’s son released from the hospital
Another former Steelers player on Cleveland’s roster is wide receiver Ryan Switzer, whose youngest son spent most of March struggling with COVID-19 and a mysterious hemorrhage.
The son’s hemorrhage proved difficult to diagnose, so the family traveled from Cleveland to Boston, where surgeons were apparently able to determine the cause, and Christian died on the 29th. March.
They took Christian to the OR. Please pray for our little boy and for the surgeons.

Later in the day, Switzer tweeted that the surgery was successful and that Christian should make a full recovery.
Switzer gave new information Thursday, citing that Christian had been released from the hospital and taken by his mother and father to visit the famous New England Aquarium.
The little guy was released from the hospital. We couldn’t let him miss a visit to the aquarium while we were here. We are so glad we can still have fun after all he has been through. He’s going home tomorrow after visiting his wonderful surgeon.

Switzer was elected on the 1st. October 2020 to Cleveland’s practice squad after he was released by the Steelers before the start of the regular season after it became clear that receiver Ray-Ray McCloud was the most dynamic kick returner.
Switzer signed a one-year reserve contract with the Browns in January, giving him another chance to revitalize his flagship career and become the next [Julian] Edelman.
Meanwhile, McCloud will return to the Steelers for another season, as he was recently re-elected for another year. But in 2021, he’ll have to compete with Matthew Sexton, a former wide receiver/kick returner at Eastern Michigan.
Chris Hubbard also sticks to the brown.
The third of three former Steelers on Cleveland’s roster is offensive lineman Chris Hubbard, who came to the NFL in 2013 as an undrafted free agent from Alabama-Birmingham.
In his five seasons with the Steelers, Hubbard went from practice squad to starting fullback in 2017. After that season, he went free and signed a five-year, $37.5 million contract with the Browns.
Hubbard started every game in his first season in Cleveland, but has since slipped into a supporting role. In fact, last season he received a salary that allowed him to continue his career with the Browns.
