Authorities say two men were taken to hospitals for minor injuries after an escalator at FedEx Field came to a sudden stop as the crowd was leaving the stadium.

It isn't clear why the upper-level escalator at Gate A came to a stop as a large portion of the crowd began to leave just before the end of Sunday's 34-19 loss by the Redskins to the New York Jets, but Prince George's County police are investigating.

Authorities say several people were evaluated but just two people were taken to the hospital.
