Josh Cribbs has a hamstring “tweak”

Since head coaches have a proven track record of downplaying player injuries by calling them merely “tweaks,” any time a coach says a player has a “tweak,” there’s a chance it’s something more.

And so when Browns coach Pat Shurmur told reporters on Sunday that receiver Josh Cribbs left practice after getting a “tweak” in his hamstring, Cribbs officially landed on the “Will he play in Week One?” watch list.

The Cribbs injury/tweak/whatever comes at a time when Mohamed Massaquoi still isn’t healthy.  Shurmur said that, while the third-year wideout is getting closer to being ready to play following a “bone bruise,” he likely won’t be available for the third preseason game.

    Nah, I’m just kidding. With three weeks until the first game of the regular season I think Josh Cribbs will be fine. He would be even finer if the No Fun Left would repeal a certain rule that takes as much fun as they can out of the game.

    It doesnt really matter if cribbs plays or not just put anybody out there to watch the ball fly out the endzone on kickoffs
