Browns Rookie LB James-Michael Johnson Suffers An Oblique Muscle Injury
Rookie linebacker James-Michael Johnson suffered an oblique muscle injury in the second quarter of the Browns' loss to the Chicago Bears at Cleveland Browns Stadium. As the game ended, the severity of Johnson's injury was not known.
The Browns cannot afford to lose another linebacker, a position in which they lacked depth even before training camp started. Chris Gocong will miss the season with a torn Achilles. Scott Fujita is still waiting word as to whether a three-game league suspension for his alleged role in the New Orleans bounty program will be rescinded.
If Johnson were sidelined for the Sept. 9 season opener, the Browns might be forced to field a starting linebacking corps of D'Qwell Jackson, Kaluka Maiava and untested Craig Robertson.
