Beckham ran a post and went up to make a catch. Beckham was clearly injured on the hit, rose from the ground and fired the ball on the ground toward the Browns' DB, before going down to the turf. That was enough to launch a cavalry of trainers to get him off the field.

Dyche, whose side carved out 20 chances in the game, added: "I thought Ben Mee had his shirt pulled by Gareth Barry in the first half, as he got onto a great cross from Robbie, so it's a tough one today".
