Hadnot has not suffered torn ACL

The Browns received good news Saturday, when they learned guard Rex Hadnot only has a MCL tear in his knee, not an ACL tear as previously believed.

The initial diagnosis of an ACL tear was communicated directly from doctors to Hadnot, but that diagnosis proved incorrect after further testing. 

Mr. Florio, who is spending the afternoon with the family in Cleveland, sent along the news via his Sprint phone.  (I’ve been corrupted.)  According to a league source, Hadnot now has a chance to play in Week One.

Hadnot is a massive guard who fits what coach Eric Magnini wants to accomplish in the running game.  He also has some flexibility to be a backup at tackle. 

The injury may hurt his chances of starting right away, but he’s expected to be a key reserve at the very least.

    I know deep inside that Florio really wishes he was allowed to use an iPhone.

    enough with the Mr. Florio joke, it’s definitely old and tired.

    Ah Greggie… you’ve just been waiting to use that headline…
    Next up – and given the caliber of guys in the NFL it probably will happen at some point – “Deadbeat Dad beat Dead”

    clearly missed “not had” opportunity.

    El Colon: Can’t disagree. Just following the boss’ orders! http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2009/08/01/nfc-west-training-camp-one-liners/
    Screaming sheep: Aaron is working his butt off at Ravens camp all day, every day. Believe he’ll be pitching in on PFT tonight.

    I bet you’ve been waiting a while to use that one, Gregg. Almost as good as the “Orton Hears a Boo” from Mr. Florio a couple days ago.
