The last thing the Cleveland Browns who worked so hard to improve their offense in this years draft needs is another blow to their defense. When Chris Gocong went down on the Browns practice field today clinching his right leg in antagonizing pain, the Coach’s and the fans knew this could be a blow the team doesn’t need. The Browns already have question marks about their defensive line, they thought with Gocong and Jackson both being healthy they wold give the team the support in stopping the run they lacked last season.
First it was Phil Taylor, then is was Ahtyba Rubin. The last thing they need is for Gocong to be the third strike to its defense. The Cleveland Browns are still waiting to find out what the fate is going to be for linebacker Scott Fujita is going to be. Gocong was the guy who picked it up for the Browns last season when Fujita went down with a broken hand. Gocong can play any of he the linebacker positions and play them very well.
If Gocong isn’t able to start the season with the Browns, the team is going to have major concerns with both Fujita and Chris Gocong out. Shurmur said after practice they don’t know how bad Gocong’s injury is and they will send him for an M.R.I. to have it further evaluated. The Browns can hope Roger Goodell has a heart and lets Fujita off on his appeal, the thing that bothers me is most appeals Goodell hears don’t get overturned. Lets hope Scott Fujita is a first. The Browns need his services, we will find out Friday…..
