In week 3 against the Minnesota Vikings, Cleveland Browns DE-turned-LB Jabaal Sheard was having yet another strong game before having to leave with a leg injury. Now his sprained knee may not only keep him out of week 4’s matchup with the Cincinnati Bengals, but it could also see him missing a couple weeks.
From the AP’s Tom Withers:
#Browns LB Jabaal Sheard not on field. He's likely to miss Sunday and maybe several weeks.
With Sheard likely missing the Bengals game, Browns rookie LB Barkevious Mingo could make his first NFL start. Sheard has 13 tackles, 1.5 sacks, and 1 forced fumble on the season. Mingo comes in with 6 tackles and 2 sacks.
Withers also reported that QB Brandon Weeden, LB Quentin Groves, and DL Billy Winn are all out for Week 4 as well.
