On Thursday, the Cleveland Browns announced that starting defensive tackle Danny Shelton suffered a knee injury during Wednesday’s practice. He will miss this Monday’s preseason game against the New York Giants, and like offensive linemen Joel Bitonio and Cameron Erving, is being listed as week-to-week.

Thursday night, Shelton tweeted confidently that “all will be good.”

After Thursday’s practice, head coach Hue Jackson said that “[it’s] nothing that I think that is way over the top, but he will be week to week and we will get Danny back as soon as we can.”

With Shelton out, we could see Desmond Bryant and Trevon Coley as the team’s top two defensive tackles against the Giants.

UPDATE: Shelton’s absence could be a bit longer. Per Field Yates of ESPN, the knee injury could keep Shelton out 3-6 weeks.
