Browns rookie safety Jabrill Peppers left Sunday’s loss to the Chargers with a knee injury and the team doesn’t have any word about his prognosis at this point.

Coach Hue Jackson said at a Monday press conference that Peppers had an MRI done on the knee Monday in order to come up with that prognosis. Jackson added that he’s hopeful that the test won’t show anything seriously wrong.

Peppers was one of three first-round picks by the Browns this year and he’s started all 10 games he’s played so far this season. He has 43 tackles on defense and has also served as a returner. He’s averaging six yards per punt return and 20.1 yards on eight kickoff returns.

Jackson also said that tight end Randall Telfer did not suffer a concussion during Sunday’s loss and is expected to be fine.

    Stop confusing me. When I see the words “Browns” and “good news” in the same headline, I assume that the season has ended.

  2. It’s too hard to tell if he’s overrated because they have him playing free safety. Of all of the positions he played in college (RB, LB, Strong Safety, PR), he was never a ball hawking free safety. The kid can hit, wrap tackle and close on the ball quickly, but he does not anticipate the route and jump it. He waits until the player has the ball and then slams him. Again, that’s a perfect run stopping strong safety or a way to provide help in the cover 2.

    This Angel Safety thing is not used anywhere else in the NFL because it is ineffective and yet we are blaming Jabrill for playing it poorly. Again, I don’t know if the kid is overrated because they are scheming him so badly. This is a perfect example of the coaching staff and personnel staff being on different pages. The coaches wanted a ball-hawk like Malik Hooker, the GM thought that Peppers plus a first rounder was the same thing if not better.

    Time to fire everyone. Can’t get any worse than they are right now. Why stay the course at 1-27.
