Barkevious Mingo won’t play against Dolphins

The Browns will have to wait at least another week for their first-round pick to make his regular season debut.

Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that Browns coach Rob Chudzinski said Friday that Mingo will not play against the Dolphins on Sunday. Mingo has been a limited participant in practice this week as he makes his recovery from a bruised lung and the team said earlier this week that they would do more tests to see if he would be able to play in the opener.

There’s been no specific updates as to the results of those tests, but Mingo’s inactivity tells you pretty much everything you need to know for this week. The Browns face the Ravens next week in a game that could mark Mingo’s first appearance of the season. Paul Kruger, Jabaal Sheard and Quentin Groves should handle the outside linebacker work this week.

Chudzinski also said that defensive end Ahtyba Rubin and cornerback Buster Skrine are questionable for the game. Rubin is suffering from a calf injury while Skrine hurt his shoulder during practice on Thursday. If those two starters are unable to play, their loss would leave the Browns defense awfully thin for the season opener.

    There is no way his parents didn’t hate him for being born with a name like that

    Sounds like the Latin name for some weird Dingo.

    Maybe the mingo ate your baby?

    I doubt the entire team will show up to play on Sunday, if history is any indication.

    How did they manage to get Rubin and Skrine hurt? Just like that? What were they doing in practice? C’mon!

    Say what you will about the name Barkevious, what’s up with the names you all picked for yourselves? :-/

    M-I-N-G-O…and Mingo will ride the bench-o.

    Bummer for the Browns.

    Can’t say I blame them, though. The doctors said taking another hit in the chest with that injury could cause fatal internal bleeding, so they have good reason to play it as safe as possible.

    The sequel to Django Unchained.

    If this was a Dolphins story about Dion Jordan, Mingo would be called a bust of a draft pick….

    Strange those comments are completely missing.

    @tfaulk

    If you follow every team like I do you’ll notice they pin point specific players for the smarky comments on each team. For Cleveland its Brandon Weeden and Trent Richardson. The only team they seem to pinpoint as a whole for negative press is the NY Jets.

    Just do what everyone else does, weed out the opinion to get to the actual news.
