Jake Delhomme has ankle injury

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.

    He might not have had 6 turnovers, but he lost the game for the Browns when he threw that awful pick just before halftime.

    He’s done, Now the only player left your team who belongs in the NFL is a Special Teams expert.

    Rest assured one thing…they’re not clamouring for Derek Anderson’s return!

    I get a kick out of Browns fans talking smack before the season. Bengals fans, too. Looks like the same, identical losing season to me. They should be use to it by now.
    GO STEELERS!!

    “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”
    No offense here, Florio, but what kind of “source” did it take to tell you that? My 7 year old nephew could probably have safely assumed that, if a QB dinged his ankle on Sunday, and the team announced “tests” on Monday, that there’d be more information available Tuesday.

    Browns- Chiefs in week 2???????? This could be a 6-3 game!

    Bring on the Seneca Wallace era?!?!

    Delhomme twisted his ankle in the first half, and was noticeably limping after the injury.
    So the coach left him in for the entire game with a foot he could not plant on to be able to throw confidently.
    Mangenius, indeed.

    Do you have to take college English to be a journalist? I know if I turned in a sentence like that I’d have gotten an F.

    This is just a cover for Jake’s real injury, a bruised ego, er, quarterbackus incompetus.

    delhomme was terrible after the TD throw to MM. I hope it was the ankle and not the brain because he looked great in pre-season.

  15. outofexcuses says: Sep 13, 2010 6:42 PM

    Bad loss, one game though. Wallace would be an improvement. When bullets were flying Delhomme reverted back to form of last year and a half. Jerome Harrison only gets 9 carries, really? Mangini sucks.

    The article makes it sound like Jake was hardly at fault for the loss when in fact the Browns couldn’t have lost the game without him. They averaged 5.8 ypc to Cadillacs 3. Really, the Bucs looked inept before he opened the door with his first pick and then all but INSISTED on a Bucs victory with his entire second half performance. On behalf of SW Fla, Thank You Jake. Just the shot in the arm the Bucs needed to start a rebuilding year.

    Says the guy who’s team “fought” to a 9-9 field goal battle into OT when they finally got lucky and Mendenhall broke a run. How sad is it they couldn’t put shit together for 4.5 quarters, though. Oh yeah, Steelers look like real world beaters now. I think *you* might wanna get used to the idea of a losing season after that limp dick game the Steelers played yesterday.

    Now Browns fans know why the Panthers got rid of him, he’s a good leader, but he turns the ball over too much, i do like Colt McCoy’s potential and hope the Browns strike gold with him.

    As usual, Steelers fans run their big, dumb mouths without thinking. You really wanna make fun of teams you think might battle it out in a utterly-boring-no-scoring FG snoozefest— like your team did yesterday?

    I think the Seneca Wallace era is about to begin too. And it will be followed shortly by the Colt Mccoy era and then the Browns picking again in the top five.

    “I think the Seneca Wallace era is about to begin too. And it will be followed shortly by the Colt Mccoy era and then the Browns picking again in the top five. ”
    that is what i see too.
    delhome scares the crap out me like dilfus used too.
    I sure don’t see Holmgren enjoying his stable of qb’s at the moment…
    either a top 5 next season or we trade for a qb…

    @USMC-BUC
    don’t forget the browns also have arguably the best offensive tackle in the league with Joe Thomas.
