Despite an apparent concussion at the end of the game against Baltimore last week, head coach Eric Mangini expects Josh Cribbs to play against Detroit this weekend. Unlike most weeks, this might actually make a difference as Cleveland aims for their second win of the season in a battle of the two worst football franchises of the past decade.
Although the play should not have even occurred since the Browns took four timeouts in the second half, Cribbs left the field on a stretcher and was hospitalized. Dwan Edwards of the Ravens received a $5,000 fine for punishing Cribbs after a lateral on the game’s final play. Just a reminder, the Browns lost last week 16-0 and as far as my calculations, no single play in the game of football can achieve more than six points.
