Allen Kee / ESPN Images(CLEVELAND) -- Cleveland Browns quarterback Josh McCown suffered a collarbone injury in Monday night's game against the Baltimore Ravens, forcing him to come out in the fourth quarter.

McCown got injured after being tackled in the third quarter but chose to stay in the game, which Cleveland lost 33-27, with just seconds to spare.

"Probably one of the toughest guys that I’ve ever played with," quarterback Austin Davis, who came in for McCown, said of his teammate after the game. "You pretty much have to drag him off the field. His arm was falling off, and he went back out there and tried to keep fighting and keep playing."

It's unclear if McCown's collarbone is broken. He is expected to undergo more tests on Tuesday.

"We'll know more [Tuesday]," Browns coach Mike Pettine said after the game.

Pettine did not say whether Davis or Johnny Manziel would start at quarterback on Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals should McCown be unable to play.

“We will rely on what the trainers say. If he is cleared to play, then he’ll play. If he is not, then he won’t,” Pettine said.

Kevork Djansezian/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Los Angeles Lakers great Kobe Bryant announced his retirement Sunday, saying this season -- his 20th in the NBA -- will be his last.

The NBA legend made the announcement hours before Sunday's game, writing in a poem: "This season is all I have left to give. My heart can take the pounding, my mind can handle the grind, but my body knows it's time to say goodbye."

The Philadelphia native dominated the sport for two decades, entering the NBA directly from high school and playing for the Lakers for 20 years -- his entire career.

Kobe's accomplishments speak for themselves: He won five NBA titles, was a 17-time All Star and earned two Olympic gold medals.

Here are some of his best performances, according to ESPN NBA reporters:

1. In Game 7 of the 2000 Western Conference Finals, Kobe's iconic alley-oop to Shaquille O'Neal sealed the win against the Portland Trail Blazers.

2. Then in the 2000 NBA Finals, Shaq fouled out towards the end of the game, and Kobe stepped up, bringing the Lakers a crucial Game 4 win.

3. In December 2005, Kobe scored a career-high 62 points in three quarters against the Dallas Mavericks -- just a month before his historic 81-point game. He then sat out the entire fourth quarter.

4. In the 2006 playoffs, Kobe's buzzer beater against the Phoenix Suns gave the Lakers a 3-1 series lead.

5. And of course, in January 2006, Kobe achieved an 81-point game -- the second-most points scored by an individual player in NBA history.

Mike Stone/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — It looks like the New England Patriots could be down another player.

Even before tight end Rob Gronkowski was carried off the field with a knee injury during Sunday’s losing game against the Denver Broncos, a knee injury also threatended to bench Dont’a Hightower for a few weeks, NFL Media reports.

According to the report, the linebacker has apparently sprained his MCL.

Though the knee injury is not likely to end the season for Hightower, it will keep the player off the field for several weeks while he recovers.

ABC News(NEW YORK) -- At just 15 years old, Reece Whitley is already being called the next Michael Phelps.

Whitley, who stands 6-foot-8, is a swimming sensation and Monday morning on ABC News' Good Morning America, he learned that he was named Sports Illustrated’s SportsKid of the Year for 2015.

“Heyyyyy, awesome,” the swimming sensation from Lafayette Hill, Pennsylvania, said, clapping his hands in excitement. “It’s amazing. This whole process has been really fun to be a part of. So I think just seeing this at the end has been really cool. I’m enjoying it.”

Even first lady Michelle Obama tweeted, congratulating Whitley’s outstanding accomplishments on Monday.

Congrats @_reecewhitley on becoming @SIKids #SportsKid of the Year. We are so proud of you!

— The First Lady (@FLOTUS) November 30, 2015

“Wow, thank you,” he said in awe of her message. “That’s awesome.”

Mark Bechtel, managing editor of Sports Illustrated Kids, says the magazine looks for “kids who excel on the field and off it,” when choosing their SportsKid of the Year. “Or in Reece’s case, in the pool and out of it,” he added.

“What makes him so special is that he’s 15 years old. He’s an elite world class athlete, but you wouldn’t know it by watching the way he acts,” Bechtel said. “He’s got time for school, he’s got time to mentor all these little kids who look up to him and want to be him. Everything he does, he just does with this youthful exuberance and joy and so much humility.”

Whitley credits his success to failure at summer camp when he was 7.

“I failed that deep-water test the first time I did it. So I told my mom that night and she enrolled me in lessons the next week and this is what happens,” he said in an interview with ABC News’ Linsey Davis.

Whitley holds five national age group records. His swimming times are fast enough to have already qualified him for the 2016 Olympic trials.

And he’s not only breaking records. As an African-American, Whitley is breaking barriers, too.

Seventy percent of African-American children don’t know how to swim, according to the USA Swimming Foundation.

Asked for his reaction to that statistic, Whitley replied: “I think as I get older ... I’m going to need to take -- play a key role in kind of integrating swimming into inner city communities a lot more.”

Davis asked Whitley how he feels to be compared to swimming’s elite athletes.

“It means a lot, but at the end of the day you can’t really get caught up in that stuff,” he said. “It throws your mind off.”

Little League pitcher Mo’Ne Davis was last year’s SportsKid of the Year.

Sports Illustrated Kids is available online Monday and on newsstands Tuesday.

Scott Clarke / ESPN Images(SEATTLE) -- Seattle Seahawks tight end Jimmy Graham is out for the rest of the season after suffering a knee injury on Sunday, according to the team's head coach.

"We've loved Jimmy Graham coming to our team and we're very grateful that he's been a part of it and we're going to miss the heck out of him the rest of the season," coach Pete Carroll said Sunday after Seattle's 39-30 win against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Carroll said Graham hurt the patellar tendon in his right knee and will need surgery.

The tight end had to come out of the game in the fourth quarter after going up for a pass from Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson in the end zone. Graham came down awkwardly and had to be carted off the field.
