What stood out on Tuesday in Cleveland Browns practice?
The Cleveland Browns fourth day of practice is in the books as the team wrapped up another day of work on Tuesday.
The weather was better, which was a nice change after the rain-soaked practice messed things up the prior two days of practice, but that wasn’t the only headline.
Plenty more went on, including a tough injury that was the talk of the day for the Browns. It’s also the first of our three takeaways from the fourth day of practice.
3. Injuries cannot be prevented
Just like the day before, there was some news that shook things up, but this time it was much worse. Mack Wilson was lost to a knee injury just one day after he was pulled to the side by head coach Kevin Stefanski for a tackle that injured Nick Chubb.
That tackle sent Chubb to the locker room and he’s still not practicing. Instead, he’s being evaluated for a concussion and is still in the team’s protocol. As for Wilson, he went down while trying to make a tackle and ended up holding his left leg right afterward. It appears as though the injury is a significant one as he had to be carted off the field after he tried to get up and was unable to put weight on his knee.
Cleveland was already dangerously thin at the position and losing Mack, who started 14 games for them last season, is a huge blow for them. They’re going to need other players to step up now in his absence. There will be more needed to be filled than just on-field performance too as Mack was starting to become a vocal leader of the unit.
