Browns rookie strong safety Eric Hagg will have knee surgery on Monday, coach Pat Shurmur said. Hagg did not play Saturday night in the Browns' preseason opener against the Green Bay Packers.

Hagg, the Browns' seventh-round pick (248th overall) in this year's draft, fell on his left knee Thursday during practice. After the Browns' exhibition game against the Packers, Shurmur called the injury a "minor knee deal."

The 6-foot-1, 205-pound Hagg is listed as the No. 2 strong safety on the team's depth chart. T.J. Ward is the starter.

Shurmur said it's too early to tell if Hagg is a candidate for injured reserve.
