NFL Injury Report:
The Cleveland Browns need to mosey on down to Home Depot and
purchase one of those bright blue bug zapper lights the ones that so many of us see and
hear sizzling bugs like steaks during a summer barbecue. Cleveland Browns rookie kicker, Brandon
Bogotay, was making the most out of his start last night against the Lions with
a 43-yard field goal and two extra points when the NFL Injury Bug, fat from
feasting on the rest of the team, decided it needed a little more dinner.
Warsinskey of Cleveland.com reports that the rookie from Georgia felt
stiffness in his groin before the start of the second half of last night’s
tilt against the Lions. Termed a minor
groin strain, the NFL first-timer did not play the second half as a precautionary
Replaced by veteran K Shayne Graham, Bogotay and Graham are
in an open competition to win the starting kicking job. Phil Dawson created the vacancy when he left C-Town and heeded west to San Francisco.
Bogotay has plenty of leg to make it in the NFL and reports
are that he was giving Graham tough competition. Bogotay has been working with legendary
kicking guru Gary Zauner and knows that he has no room for mistakes. That is why Bogotay declared himself ready to
play next game. Do the Browns take an
unproven rookie or an aging 13-year veteran in Graham? Unfortunately, for Bogotay, if his injury
turns out to be any more serious, the Browns' decision will be made for them.

I find nothing more hilarious than streakers. The whole idea to me is hilarious from beginning to end. What exactly crosses somebody’s mind to take off all of their clothes and run across a sporting event? Arrest and capture is inevitable, and television stations have an unwritten rule to never film you doing it. However, this is where social media comes into play. Thankfully,...
Per Mary Kay Cabot, Browns rookie linebacker Barkevious Mingo has been released from the Cleveland Clinic and could miss about 2-3 weeks with a bruised lung.
Mingo, the sixth overall pick in last April’s NFL draft, left Thursday’s game against the Detroit Lions in the second quarter due to difficulty breathing. Mingo was set to be released Friday afternoon but spent Friday night...
Lawrence Vickers is looking for a job. His resume shows that he can open holes so that running backs can gain positive yards. Vickers is the guy who got Peyton Hillis the best rushing season of his career. Hillis has done nothing without Vickers leading the way for him. The Cleveland Browns offensive line sucks at run blocking, through one preseason game we have seen Cleveland backs...
Week 2. You can almost taste the street hot dogs and feel the quasi-excitement, right? Anyway, the Browns face the Detroit Lions this week in the always important Great Lakes Classic. The Lions are a regular season opponent this year, but, as always, the preseason game against them is a huge deal for both the organization and the fans.
Alright, that’s all the sarcasm I can muster...
In case you don’t know Jordan Cameron, the tight end for the Cleveland Browns who scored two touchdowns in tonight’s preseason game don’t worry because Steve Mariucci doesn’t know either. You have to know when the mic is hot Mooch!
CLEVELAND An exciting night for the Cleveland Browns ended with disappointing news.
After the Browns 24-6 preseason win over the Lions, head coach Rob Chudzinski said first-round pick Barkevious Mingo will remain hospitalized overnight with a bruised lung and that running back Dion Lewis has a fractured fibula.
Lewis had been having an outstanding camp. Chudzinski said no decisions...
Browns rookie linebacker Barkevious Mingo has been released from the hospital after bruising his lung in an exhibition game.
Mingo spent two nights in The Cleveland Clinic with the unusual injury. He was hurt on a hit in the first half of Thursday night's game against Detroit. Mingo played on special teams during the game.
The Browns say he likely will be kept out of practice...
Browns rookie linebacker Barkevious Mingo has been hospitalized with a bruised lung.
Mingo, the No. 6 overall pick in April's NFL draft from LSU, was injured in the first half of Cleveland's 24-6 victory over Detroit on Thursday. The team initially said Mingo had a rib injury, but following the game coach Rob Chudzinski said Mingo had been taken to the hospital and would...
Browns fans are an optimistic bunch, at least collectively. When you add up the results of our survey, it yields a 9-7 prediction. (Game-by-game results are listed below.) That’s probably a bit too confident for my tastes. I’ve said all along that eight wins should be the goal for the team if they are able to stay healthy and get better from last season. So let’s break it down...
CLEVELAND (AP) -- Browns running back Montario Hardesty underwent arthroscopic knee surgery and will likely miss at least the first two regular-season games.
The team said Hardesty's operation "went as expected" on Thursday. Hardesty's football career has been slowed by knee problems. The former second-round draft pick has had the anterior cruciate ligament in both...
The preseason continues tonight for the Cleveland Browns. Can they build on last week’s performance? These are the things I’ll be watching for…
From the starters:
1) Cleveland’s offensive line handled the Rams. Especially in pass protection. Brandon Weeden had all kinds of time and took advantage of it to the tune of 10 for 13 passing for 112 yards and a touchdown. The Lions...
CLEVELAND (AP) -- Browns rookie linebacker Barkevious Mingo was released from the hospital after a two-night stay because of a bruised lung.
The unusual injury came on a hit some time in the first half of Thursday night's exhibition victory over the Detroit Lions. The Browns can't pinpoint exactly when the 6-foot-4, 240-pounder was hurt.
Mingo had been in The Cleveland Clinic...

Earlier this week, the Cleveland Browns search to replace longtime kicker Phil Dawson seemingly swung in the direction of an unproven commodity, as head coach Rob Chudzinski announced Brandon Bogotay will take care of all the kicking duties against the Detroit Lions on Thursday night. With experienced veteran Shayne Graham on the roster, the Browns seem...
CLEVELAND (AP) -- This was a win that hurt the Browns.
Quarterback Brandon Weeden's second straight strong performance turned into only a footnote Thursday night in a 24-6 victory over the Lions.
Weeden, who has done everything to win Cleveland's starting job and is only waiting for coach Rob Chudzinski to make it official, threw two touchdown passes in the first half and...
An actual, real-life streaker — not the so-called “streakers” who run on to sports fields fully clothed — bared a lot of skin (perhaps too much) as he interrupted the Detroit Lions-Cleveland Browns preseason game during the third quarter on Thursday night. Reports out of Cleveland indicate that Lions running back Joique Bell tried to […]The post Streaker interrupts Browns...
