Cleveland Browns rookie 1st round draft pick LB Barkevious Mingo is in the hospital with a bruised lung after the game today against the Detroit Lions. Tough injury for the young kid and for the team.
There are a lot of expectations for Mingo this year. He has a ton of potential and was expected to make an impact on the defensive side of the ball for the Browns. He was going to be a huge part of the pass rush, but now he could be our for a while. There is no timetable for his return and he is going to stay the night at the hospital to be evaluated.
It definitely is not the way the young kid would like to start out his career. We are just hoping that all things are alright with him and that he recovers quickly.
The Browns will have to start looking at possible replacements for Mingo for a little while, until they can get an actual timeline on his return.
