Gocong is hurt

August 4, 2012 - Mike McLain
BEREA -- The Browns defense might have suffered a major setback Saturday when outside linebacker Chris Gocong suffered what appeared to be a serious injury to his lower right leg.

Gocong was hurt on a goal line play that saw tight end Jordan Cameron pull down a Brandon Weeden pass for a touchdown. Gocong was involved in coverage when he fell to the ground.

Gocong remained on the ground for several minutes as he was quickly surrounded by medical personnel and teammates. He was helped to a cart and driven off the field.

Gocong was to have a MRI. Coach Pat Shurmur wasn't aware of the results when he talked to reporters after practice.

Teammates D'Qwell Jackson and Scott Fujita have been around long enough to know when an injury is serious. Fujita kind of nodded his head when asked if he thinks Gocong could be gone for a lengthy amount of time.

Linebacker is an arera in which the Browns can least afford serious injuries. Fujita is expected to miss the first three games as the result of a suspension handed down from the league for his reported role in the New Orleans Saints' bounty scandal. With Gocong likely gone, the Browns might have to go into the season with Kaluka Maiava and rookie James-Michael Johnson as outside starters.
