Injury Updates: WR Carlton Mitchell, S Eric Hagg

Fortunately, the Cleveland Browns came away from their first preseason game fairly healthy. The only player who came away injured during the game was cornerback Coye Francies, who suffered a lower back injury and is considered day-to-day. However, there were two injuries that were announced prior to the game, hence why you did not see them on the field.

Wide receiver Carlton Mitchell had surgery on his finger and will be out for a couple of weeks. Head coach Pat Shurmur was asked if placing Mitchell on the injured reserve would be an option. "I think that is way too early to know," said Shurmur. "The injuries we are talking about with them, although they are surgeries, we anticipate them coming quickly."

When referencing multiple surgeries, Shurmur was talking about rookie safety Eric Hagg, who has shown a knack for getting his hands on passes in training camp. Shurmur said that Hagg "will have surgery Monday on a minor knee deal." Exactly what that means, I don't know. Hagg probably has the best shot at making the final roster, but the injuries to Francies and Mitchell are tough for those guys. Francies has had some injuries the past few years and is on the roster bubble, and the same could be said for Mitchell when you consider the fact that Mohamed Massaquoi, Brian Robiskie, Joshua Cribbs, Greg Little, and Jordan Norwood seem to be ahead of him on the depth chart.
