Morning Browns Town and Happy Tuesday!!!
Running back Willis McGahee suffered a concussion on Sunday against the New England Patriots. McGahee must
pass all tests by the independent specialists in order to be cleared for practice this week, and ultimately cleared to play on Sunday.
Safety T.J. Ward was chosen by his teammates to receive the 2013 Ed Block Courage Award. The award is given annually to a member of the 32 NFL teams who exemplifies the qualities of Ed Block, the former head athletic trainer of the Baltimore Colts, based on courage, compassion, commitment and community. All 32 winners will be honored at an event in Baltimore.
“First of all, I want to say thank you, and it means a lot in being chosen as the winner of this award by my teammates and my peers,” Ward said in a statement. “It means a lot to come back from injury, period. A lot of guys go through this, like other guys on the list, Phil Taylor and Jason Pinkston, so it was definitely an honor to receive this award and to be awarded by my teammates. It means a lot to me.”
After wide receiver Josh Gordon’s outstanding receiving day on Sunday, he has surpassed the Lions Calvin Johnson as the leading receiver in the NFL now with 1,400 yards. The most impressive part of that, is the fact he missed the first two games of the year.

Dawg Pound Daily Biscuits this Week
Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski on how he thinks the Browns competed against the Patriots on Sunday. ”It was a hard-fought December football game against a great team,” said Chudzinski. “I’m not at all happy with the outcome, but as I mentioned (Sunday) I’m very proud in the effort our team gave both in preparation for the game as well as during the game itself. Experience is a great teacher for a team and the things that we can take from this game and build on are that we can go toe-to-toe with anybody in this league.”
Browns head coach Rob Chudzinksi on the outstanding play of Josh Gordon and how good of a player he really is. ”He’s playing at a high level, no question about it,” said Chudzinski. “I think that you have to put him in that conversation of those guys. Consistency is the thing that we’ll be looking for as he continues to improve. He has a lot of things he can get better at but he’s great example of a player that you see developing. His best days are ahead of him like our best days are ahead of us.”
Browns linebacker D’Qwell Jackson on the season and how he believes the Browns have a chance to win out. ”I see us finishing off with a better record than we’ve had in a long time around here,” said Jackson. “That’s a positive. That’s moving in the right direction. They’re a tough team.”

From Browns FB page: “Rob Chudzinski hopes Sunday’s loss shows players they’re capable of winning.” …. Right. Because that makes sense.
