Browns LB Barkevious Mingo To Have More Lung Tests After Coughing Up Blood
Browns rookie linebacker Barkevious Mingo will undergo further medical tests on a bruised lung, an injury that caused him to spit up blood during an exhibition game last week.
Mingo was hospitalized for two days at The Cleveland Clinic after he sustained the unusual injury some time in the first half of Thursday night’s win over the Detroit Lions. The No. 6 overall pick in this year’s draft said he coughed up blood and experienced shortness of breath on the sideline before he told coaches and the team’s trainers he was hurt.
Browns CEO Joe Banner said Mingo will have more tests and the team does not yet know how long he will be out.
“We really don’t,” Banner said after giving reporters a tour of the team’s renovated headquarters. “(The timetable is) still fairly open-ended. Hopefully we’ll get more information soon and have a better idea.”
