According to ESPN's Ed Werder, Barkevious Mingo has been medically cleared for contact, and is expected to make his rookie debut Sunday against the Ravens.

Mingo has been recovering from a bruised lung that has sidelined him since the preseason. Mingo was injured during the Lions preseason game and has been out since.

This is obviously good news for the Cleveland Browns, and their number 6 overall pick in the draft. The Browns front-seven and defensive line looked great Sunday, even without Mingo and Ahtyba Rubin (calf). Getting Mingo back will add another edge rusher to an already formidable front-seven.

Here's to hoping all goes well this week and he can make his debut Sunday.

UPDATE: Here is another report indicating positive news for Mingo:
