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. Tim 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 measure. 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.  You can follow me on twitter @TheSoftParade69 Talk football talk cigars talk anything, I know a little about a lot.
