The health of Browns tight end Jordan Cameron is increasingly becoming a concern after he suffered his third concussion in the last two years on Sunday.
Cameron suffered a concussion in December of 2012 and another in December of 2013 and missed a total of three games late in the last two seasons as a result. Now Cameron may need to miss even more time. It would seem unlikely that he’ll play on Sunday, and probably not in the Browns’ game next Thursday, either.
Browns coach Mike Pettine said the team will follow the NFL’s concussion protocol, and whether Cameron will play will be determined by the medical staff.
“The league, as they should be, is very deliberate with the protocol,” Pettine said, via Cleveland.com. “You just take each day and see where he is symptom-wise. I haven’t gotten the full medical report yet today. I’ll probably know a little bit more later this afternoon.”
Cameron suffered his concussion on Sunday when he took a hit to the head from Raiders safety Brandian Ross, who was flagged and will likely be fined.
