Browns rookie outside linebacker Barkevious Mingo suffered a bruised lung in Thursday’s exhibition win vs. Detroit, head coach Rob Chudzinski said after the game, per multiple media reports.
Mingo was to spend the night in the hospital, per multiple reports.
Chudzinski also announced that reserve running back Dion Lewis had suffered a broken fibula, according to multiple reports. Lewis had played well during the summer and was competing for the top backup role behind starter Trent Richardson.
With Lewis hurt Thursday and Montario Hardesty recovering from knee surgery, the Browns’ running back depth is somewhat thin at the halfway point of the preseason.
The same can be said for the Browns’ guard depth. Jason Pinkston, who started at right guard vs. Detroit, suffered an ankle injury, and he was in a walking boot after the game, according to Tony Grossi of ESPN Cleveland.
