The Cleveland Browns have lost several key players this season due to major injuries, following a trend seen around the NFL.

Cleveland Browns fans are rightfully frustrated after this year’s 0-9 start, and things may only get worse now that Jamie Collins is out for the rest of the season.

Collins has been dealing with injuries all season, so it is somewhat fitting that his season-ending injury occurred on a play when he made an interception, showing a glimpse of what could have been if he was healthy all year.

Collins joins Joe Thomas as two captains out for the year, which is something a lot of NFL teams are dealing with this season. The injured reserve roster from around the league could win a Super Bowl if put together.

Football is an inherently dangerous sport but it is hard to remember a season in which so many star players went down with major injuries. Some fans may point to the game itself being too violent, but others are hoping it is just some bad luck in 2017.

Browns fans are used to bad luck, so the injury to Collins is just another instance of watching the season collapse before our very eyes. The good news is that Corey Coleman is returning from his injury this week. Let’s hope his hand is fully healed so we don’t wake up to more bad news concerning his health.

We take a look at all this and more in today’s Daily Dawg Tags.
