It hurts so bad

September 26, 2010 - Mike McLain

The problems continue to mount for the Browns as they prepare for today's game against the Baltimore Ravens.

If bad play on offense wasn't enough for coach Eric Mangini to deal with, he now has to deal with injuries. Linebacker D'Qwell Jackson was put on injured reserved with a pectoral injury. Defensive lineman Shaun Rogers is out today with an ankle injury. Running back Jerome Harrison is out with a thigh injury. Receiver Brian Robiskie is down with a hamstring problem, and linebacker Marcus Benard is out .

The biggest loss might be Benard, who's easily the best pass rusher on the roster. He's good for one sack a game and maybe more.

Rogers is clearly on the decline and might be nearing the end of his career. He's on the injury report every week. The ankle injury he suffered last season obviously hasn't fully healed, which is why he missed all of training camp. He's now a liability.

Jackson's career with the Browns is probably finished. He wasn't a happy camper with the one-year qualifying offer he received from the front office during the offseason, which was a clear message that the new management team doesn't think he's a quality player. Now that his season is finished, so is his career in Cleveland.

Robiskie's loss against the Ravens shouldn't hurt. He's been a non-factor. Plus, it will open the way for more chances for Joshua Cribbs.
