As expected, Browns nose tackle Shaun Rogers has been lost for the year.
Per Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Rogers has been placed on injured reserve with a lower leg injury.
It’s apparently a broken ankle; coach Eric Mangini said that Rogers will undergo surgery.
Cabot also points out that safety Brodney Pool has suffered another concussion. It’s the fourth or fifth concussion of his career, and Pool’s career could be hanging in the balance, especially in the current environment.
Without these players, the Browns will have a hard time keeping their playoff hopes alive.
