Browns quarterback Jake Delhomme’s experience in the first game of the 2010 regular season turned out a lot better than his experience in the first game of the 2009 regular season.
But while Delhomme didn’t cough up six turnovers, his team didn’t win. And Delhomme emerged from the game with an ankle injury.
Coach Eric Mangini said Monday that Delhomme will undergo tests on his ankle, according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Delhomme reportedly twisted his ankle during the first half of the 17-14 loss to the Bucaneers, and he was seen limping thereafter.
Mangini didn’t specify the type or timing of the tests, but it’s our understanding via communications with a source having knowledge of the situation that more information as to the status of the ankle will be available on Tuesday.
The Browns host the Chiefs on Sunday.
UPDATE: Cabot reports that Delhomme will have an MRI.
