Ryan Encinas Touchdown: 5-Year-Old Cancer Survivor Scores During Browns Practice (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

It might be hard for Browns running back Trent Richardson to score a more memorable touchdown during the regular season than Ryan Encinas' 40-yard run during Cleveland's "Family Night" practice at FirstEnergy Stadium on Saturday night.

Encinas, a 5-year-old cancer survivor, finished off the night with a long touchdown run with Richardson directing him the whole way. Afterwards, just like the Nebraska football team did for brain cancer patient Jack Hoffman, the Browns lifted Encinas into the air and celebrated around him.

"That was cool. The kid's been through a lot," Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden said, via ESPN. "I do a lot of stuff back home with Children's Hospital, so every time something like that happens, it brings a lump to your throat."
