Browns Likely to be Without Tony Pashos for "a Couple of Weeks"

A couple of days ago, Cleveland Browns offensive line coach George Warhop indicated that right tackle Tony Pashos could be out for several weeks. Head coach Pat Shurmur would not deny Warhop's comment. "We’ll have to see," said Shurmur. "He’s still in the boot and he’s probably going to be out this week.  Then I think we’ll just take it week to week, but there is a chance."

The Browns still plan to use a rotation at right tackle this week, but it sounds like Artis Hicks will start the game instead of Oniel Cousins. "We’ll probably start Artis in there, but you’ll see Oniel in there as well," stated Shurmur.

When asked if Pashos had suffered any form of a setback, Shurmur said that he had not and that it just takes time for that type of injury to settle down. Hicks and Cousins better be ready, because they'll likely be lined up against Robert Mathis the entire game. Constant disruption from that side of the line will kill what the Browns are trying to achieving in the West Coast Offense. Hopefully the Browns are able to neutralize Mathis just enough to take advantage of the rest of the Colts' flaws on defense.
