Actually losing the game to the New York Jets apparently wasn’t enough. To add insult to injury, the Browns are dealing with a number of, well, injuries:
- Linebacker Scott Fujita could be out “a little while”, according to head coach Eric Mangini. As the leader of the defense, this certainly comes as a blow, but this does come at a time when the schedule gets a little easier. Fujita has an injured left knee ligament, but let’s hope he can return to the field soon.
- Josh Cribbs is dealing with four dislocated toes but is expected to practice later this week. His absence was certainly felt on Sunday, especially on offense.
- Cornerback Sheldon Brown is also expected to resume practice later this week after suffering a shoulder injury against the Jets.
- Right guard Billy Yates will be placed on injured reserve with a biceps injury, giving rookie Shawn Lauvao the chance to take advantage of plenty of playing time.
