Browns lose punter Dave Zastudil for the season

The Browns will have a new punter this season.

The team placed Dave Zastudil on injured reserve Tuesday, meaning that Reggie Hodges will be the team’s punter and holder for 2010.  Hodges isn’t actually that new, as he replaced Zastudil late last season when nine-year veteran tore his patella tendon.

Zastudil struggled to recover from the injury, but Browns coach Eric Mangini said he wouldn’t be surprised to see him back with the Browns in 2011.

    Luckily Dave has a family fortune accumulated in the prescription drug industry to fall back on.

    I see staph infections are still a problem in Cleveland.

    Why aren’t there more Black punters and kickers? I grew up with Reggie Roby and Donald Igwebuike, now, other than Hodges there aren’t any Black punters or kickers.
    Go Browns.

    Let’s get back to talking about how Antonio Bryant duped the Bengals into giving him a huge long term contract when he missed most of last year, and probably won’t play this year. …great move, Bungals.

    They could go after Brandon Marshall.

    Martin Gramatica attempted to be, with that little dance of his…but he proved he didn’t have the rhythm when he tore his ACL trying to groove.

    @Stiller43, or, we could talk about how many University of Pittsburgh or Penn State girls Big Ben has escorted to the men’s bathroom since coming back into town.

    Good one, but State College is a few hours away, so try again.
    And he’ll be escorting the Bengals secondary into the men’s room this fall.
    Bungals are goin nowhere.

    stiller43 – definitely showing some fear of the bengals still i see. gotta run your mouth to hide your fear that we’re going to sweep you again? that’s fine. keep your meat locker running. we’ll remind you soon enough who’s the better team in the AFCN, just like last year son.

    This coming from a skins fan…what a joke. Sorry skins fan you have no right to smack any other team. Your best weapon doesn’t even want to play for your team and spends his ridiculous contract @ the buffet every night, so gtfo.

    LOL! You are a damned fool for that one, yo. LMAO

    He may not be their best weapon but, he has definitely be overused. That is changing though.
    I really thought the Bens-gals would a factor in the AFC this year, and that last year was no fluke. Then, they went out and signed Bryant & T.O. Bwuhahahaha!!
    OMG, that should tell you everything you need to know about how their own coach sees the team.
    The Bucs & the Bills didn’t even want them back! I really thought they would end up either in Washington or in Oakland. Maybe they can still sign Jemarcus to back up Carson. ;-)
    It’ll be a battle in Ohio as to who stays out of last place…at least the Clowns are finally headed in the right direction.
    T.O….it couldn’t have happened to a more deserving team!!!

    Looks like we need to re-assort.
