There is no official word on Browns nose tackle Shaun Rogers’ injury yet, but it doesn’t look good.
Rogers was seen on crutches after the game and he was unable to put any weight on his right leg. He was described as “distraught” after huddling with teammate Robaire Smith.
The Browns defense, led by Rogers, gave a great effort against the Bengals Sunday. They couldn’t stop the run, but pressured Carson Palmer nearly every time he dropped back to pass.
Three other Browns starters left Sunday’s loss: Kenyon Coleman (knee), linebacker Kamerion Wimbley (knee) and safety Brodney Pool (head). Cleveland has been losing defensive parts all season.
Pool has had at least three previous concussions.
