On Wednesday, a scary moment took place in the CFL when B.C. Lions’ offensive lineman Phillip Norman collapsed during the team’s practice after suffering what the team called a “significant medical episode.”

Following the scary medical situation, the team canceled the remainder of the team’s practice and issued a statement on the incident.

“Prior to practice, offensive lineman Phil Norman suffered a significant medical episode. Phil is currently conscious and alert and receiving full medical attention. The remainder of today’s activity has been cancelled,” the team said in a statement, according to the CFL website 3 Down Nation.

Reporter JC Abbott added a little more context to the situation, revealing that Phillip Norman collapsed and lost consciousness.

“Very scary stuff to see a player collapse and lose consciousness during a pre-practice walk through. Lions made the right call to cancel the rest of practice. My thoughts are with Norman and I’m happy to hear he is now conscious and responsive,” Abbott said in a tweet on Wednesday afternoon.

Norman, a 27-year-old offensive lineman, joined the B.C. Lions back in 2018 and has since dressed for 29 regular season games. Last season, Norman started 15 games at left guard for the B.C. Lions.
