Waiting For Next Year:
Late Friday afternoon in a conference call Cleveland head coach Rob Chudzinski gave updates on the players hurt in Thursday’s win over the Detroit Lions.
“Dion Lewis, as I mentioned last night, has a fibula fracture. It’s going to require surgery. That has not been scheduled yet.”
“Barkevious Mingo has a bruised lung. He felt better this morning. He stayed overnight in the hospital. We are going to keep him over another night as a precautionary measure; a little bit too early to give you any estimates as to where it stands.”
Chudzinski was unsure whether Mingo’s injury was on one hit or if it was a collection of hits. He did say that Mingo did not have any rib injuries.
“Jason Pinkston has a high-ankle sprain. There’s a chance he will be out in the early part of the regular season. We will just have to see how that goes.”
“Gary Barnidge has a shoulder sprain. We are expecting him to be back next week; he will be day-to-day.”

When the Cleveland Browns entered training camp this season, one of the team’s clear strengths on the depth chart was the running back position. With Trent Richardson leading the way, the Browns assembled a depth chart that could go five deep at the position—mainly because of Richardson’s injuries early in his career. The team was so deep at the...
