Carlos Hyde had one a heck of a Thursday, involving two birthdays, two touchdowns, and one monumental win.
The former Buckeye and current Browns running back spent much of his day in the hospital awaiting the birth of his first child, before going straight from the hospital to the stadium in time for Cleveland's Thursday night game against the New York Jets.
According to a couple of team sources, #Browns RB Carlos Hyde is expecting the birth of his child any minute now. Hes expected to come straight to the stadium from hospital in time to play. Im told labor was induced last night, so a potentially long & joyful day for the Hydes.— Omar Ruiz (@OmarDRuiz) September 20, 2018
Hyde made it to the game, and was instrumental in the Browns' first win in 635 days, scoring the team's only two touchdowns in the 21-17 victory and rushing for 98 yards.
For his first touchdown, Hyde had an extremely fitting celebration.
Hyde didn't stick around long to celebrate – he hurried right back to the hospital for the birth of his son, Carlos Hyde Jr.
Chased after Carlos Hyde who was running out here to the hospital. His wife is about to give birth. He said she watched the game and wants him by her side. Baby's name will be Carlos Jr. It's their first. #browns— Dianna Russini (@diannaESPN) September 21, 2018
To top it all off, Thursday was also Hyde's own 28th birthday.
Sounds like a wild day, but not one that he'd trade for the world.
