The Cleveland Browns announced a few injury-related notes today, with the most notable one being that punter Dave Zastudil has been placed on the injured reserve, ending his season. It's too bad that Zastudil couldn't recover from his right knee injury, but head coach Eric Mangini has confidence in Reggie Hodges, who was with the team last year and has had a lot of work in camp this year.
In other injury-related news, Mangini announced that right guard Floyd Womack will miss the rest of the preseason with a knee injury. I assume that means he'll be back in time for opening day, and that the team is just being cautious with the veteran. Also, rookie right guard Shawn Lauvao will be excused the rest of the week for a personal issue. That would lead me to believe that he won't play against the St. Louis Rams this Saturday. Our first-string offensive line on the right side for that game is going to be something to watch.
Tony Grossi of the Plain Dealer noted that the first-string right side featured Billy Yates and Scott Kooistra in Tuesday morning's practice. Yikes!
Thanks to Buckeye Brad for the tip on Zastudil.
