Cleveland Browns GM Tom Heckert Misses NFL Combine Due to Surgery


As the Cleveland Browns meet with prospective draft picks at the NFL Scouting Combine, general manager Tom Heckert is unable to attend due to an undisclosed surgery.

While it has been reported that Heckert underwent “serious” surgery, he is recovering without any complications. The Browns did not comment on any specifics, which is to be expected, and the only important thing is that Heckert will make a full recovery. Team spokesman Neal Gulkis had this to say to Mark Kay Cabot of The Plain Dealer:

"“Tom’s personal medical issues are his private affair and not for the club to comment on,” said team spokesman Neal Gulkis. “As we said yesterday, he’s doing fine.”"

Because of his recovery, Heckert was not able to make the trip to Indianapolis.
