Cleveland Browns linebacker Mack Wilson will reportedly not need surgery on his hyperextended knee.

That is according to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, who also reported on Sunday night that Wilson could be back within four-to-six weeks depending on how his knee responds to treatment.

Wilson took to Twitter and appears to have confirmed the report with the simple phrase of “see y’all soon.”

Wilson suffered a hyperextended left knee on August 18 during seven-on-seven drills when he landed awkwardly while defending a pass. At first it appeared that Wilson may be lost for the season, so Sunday night’s report is good news for Wilson and the Browns.

While the Browns were waiting for news on Wilson’s status, general manager Andrew Berry went out and signed veteran linebacker Malcolm Smith to give the position group a needed boost of experience.

Wilson is entering his second season with the Browns. As a rookie, he was put into the starting lineup after Week 2 when linebacker Christian Kirksey suffered a season-ending injury.

In 14 starts, Wilson played 944 defensive snaps and finished the season with 82 tackles, one interception and a sack.
