Cleveland Browns CB Eric Wright came out unscathed this morning after his Mercedes "flipped and rolled several times" on the highway. Wright was treated and released at MetroHealth Medical Center. Assuming nothing else develops, Wright will be ready to start in this weekend's game against the Green Bay Packers.
The accident occurred at 2:10 a.m. in the morning. It is suspected that Wright was coming home from a Jay-Z concert at Cleveland State's Wolstein Center. There was no suspicion of drugs or alcohol, and Wright was back at practice this morning.
Other news and notes...
- Most of the Browns players who have the flu (about 10-12 of them) should be able to play this Sunday against the Packers. Mangini told reported that two of the players tested positive for the H1N1 strain. I'm expecting that someone "important" will sit out this week, like Kamerion Wimbley did last week.
- Joshua Cribbs should be ready to go this week and could see more reps at the running back position if Jerome Harrison is out with the flu. Phil Dawson might return to action, although Billy Cundiff is still on the team's roster.
- The lack of updates haven't been a sign of disappointment after the Steelers game, I promise! I'm still trying to get Internet restored at my house; I expect it to be back for the weekend. I'll try to still have a condensed review of the loss to the Steelers; anyone else that can assist with a piece (fanpost) regarding some topic, please do!
