Over the past couple of seasons, the Cleveland Browns have been completely out of luck. This season could possibly be the most unfortunate one yet. Let’s see what’s happened so far this season to the Browns.
Starting Quarterback: Robert Griffin III. In just the first game of the season, Griffin suffered a broken coracoid bone in his left shoulder. The Browns just acquired him in the offseason, and he is already placed on the IR.
Backup Quarterback: Josh McCown. McCown sprained his left shoulder in week two’s contest vs the Ravens. This is nothing that serious and he should be out for a couple of games.
Starting Wide Receiver One: Josh Gordon. Josh Gordon has had many problems during the offseason before relating to drugs, and it happened once again. Unlike other seasons, he is only suspended for four games rather than the whole season. When Gordon returns, he should be a phenomenal player.
Starting Center: Cam Erving. Cam bruised his leg during their match vs the Ravens. He left the stadium in an ambulance; and it was later revealed that he has a pulmonary contusion. This 2015 first round draft pick could be out for a while.
Starting Defensive End: Carl Nassib. Nassib was playing as the best rookie on their team, behind Wide Receiver Corey Coleman. But, Nassib broke his hand and is having surgery this week. He should return to the fields soon with his hand severely taped up.
And to top it off…
Starting Wide Receiver Two: Corey Coleman. While Josh Gordon is suspended, Corey Coleman has been taking his spot at the Wide Receiver one; and has been doing an unbelievable job; hauling in seven passes for 173 yards and two touchdowns. However, on Wednesday, Coleman fractured his hand in practice. Their 2016 first round draft pick should miss 4-6 weeks with this injury.
Even though the Browns are trying to rebuild their team for the future, it could take quite a long time due to the misfortune they have had and the misfortune that is to come in the future.
