It has been an eventful couple of days for LB Mack Wilson. Yesterday, he made headlines for a tackle that put RB Nick Chubb in the concussion protocol. During Tuesday’s practice, after being demoted (temporarily) to the second-team defense, he suffered a leg injury during 7-on-7 drills and was carted off.
After practice, the Browns confirmed that Mack suffered a knee injury and is undergoing evaluation on its severity. Fans were hoping for a breakout season for Mack in 2020, his second year in the NFL. The team is already thin on experience at the position, and we’ll keep our fingers crossed that Wilson’s injury isn’t too severe. Either way, one would expect Browns GM Andrew Berry to start looking for another linebacker to add to the mix, assuming Wilson is going to miss some time.
In addition, the Browns announced after practice that they have waived/injured DE George Obinna with a triceps injury.
UPDATE: Per Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network, Mack appears to have a “significant hyperextension of his knee.”
#Browns promising LB Mack Wilson suffered a significant hyperextended knee in practice today, sources tell me and @RapSheet. He will miss some time and more evaluations coming before timeframe becomes clear. Not ideal but Cleveland still hoping for decent news.— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) August 19, 2020
