Cleveland Browns: Some Concerns Going Into Jacksonville

Jabber HeadSenior Analyst INovember 19, 2010

First off: Josh Cribbs is probably out this weekend. He dislocated four toes (that's right, four) on his right foot, and Cleveland has already signed a return man to fill that role.

It's not like Cleveland has a plethora of eligible WRs. Cribbs says that he intends to play against the Jags this weekend, but "Come on, man!"

Second: Scott Fujita could miss some games with a left knee ligament issue. Scott has been having a very good year leading this Browns defense, so the Browns could be losing his leadership/toughness on the field for a few games or so.

Third: Sheldon Brown is scheduled to have an MRI on his shoulder, after hurting it on Sunday against the Jets. This could be a huge gut check for a secondary that has been playing better over the past few weeks, but is far from stellar.

No Sheldon equals more Wright, and that scares me just thinking about it, especially with the way that David Garrard has been playing (Side note: is Al Harris still available?).

Last: Jake Delhomme and Seneca Wallace are said to be healthy for this weekend's game. If Mangini is smart, he will be glad that they are healthy, but start Colt; but if he wants to have a civil uprising in Cleveland, then he will start one of the other two QBs on the roster.

IMO, Colt has more than earned the starting job for the rest of the year.

Cleveland could have their hands full going into Jacksonville. David Garrard is playing really good football and his young WR corps are making plays.

Oh, and they have a pretty good running back there, too, in MJD. I'll be there, at EverBank Stadium on Sunday, cheering my ass off in the end zone and hopefully watching the Browns dominate... but I'll settle for any kind of win.

Go Browns!
