Alex Mack Having His Appendix Removed, More Injury News

Ouch.

Cleveland Browns head coach Pat Shurmur provided a few updates regarding injuries Monday afternoon, and the most surprising one involved center Alex Mack. "[He] came in with symptoms of appendicitis and he will have his appendix out soon this afternoon," said Shurmur. Fellow offensive lineman Tony Pashos noted that Mack was not feeling well during yesterday's game against the Titans, but he called Mack "tough as nails," I assume for what he had to go through.

Shurmur would not speculate how long it would take Mack to recover. The surgery comes at the best possible time since the Browns have a bye week, but it would've been nice for the line to build as much chemistry as possible before facing the Oakland Raiders in two weeks.

As most of you know, cornerback Joe Haden sprained his knee against the Titans and was in-and-out of the game in the second half. Shurmur said their is a chance he could miss some time, but that the bye week giving him more rest could negate that.

Wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi sprained his shoulder on Sunday but Shurmur said it is not believed to be a significant injury. Shurmur said that Pashos was sore following the game, but there don't appear to be any setbacks for the big right tackle. The final injury note is that wide receiver Joshua Cribbs suffered a slight knee sprain.
