Earlier today, Cleveland Browns reporters quickly made note of rookie CB Justin Gilbert limping off the field during OTA sessions, and then being seen with his right knee wrapped up. After what happened to LB Sean Lee in Dallas, though, you have to hold your breath when you hear about any injury.
Thankfully, it doesn't sound like Gilbert's injury is anything to be concerned about. After practice, head coach Mike Pettine said, "No, I don’t think it’s anything serious. That was just a bag of ice." A few hours later, Gilbert tweeted that he'll be ready-to-go for the team's next OTA session on Friday:
Im fine. WILL be back in action on friday for our next practice. #DawgPound

One more note about Gilbert: according to Jim Corbett of the USA Today, Pettine said that assistant defensive backs coach Aaron Glenn, who was recently hired by the team, will play a key role in Gilbert's development:
Mike Pettine said hiring of assit. DB coach and ex-Jet CB/scout Aaron Glenn is an undersung signing that will be critical to Justin Gilbert
