Edwards needs stitches

By Marla Ridenour Published: August 10, 2008

Browns star Braylon Edwards spent Saturday night in the hospital after he was stepped on by fellow receiver Donte' Stallworth at the end of practice.

Edwards was running sprints without shoes when Stallworth ran up on the back of Edwards' right foot. Coach Romeo Crennel said the gash required stitches, so Edwards was kept in the hospital as a precaution.

Crennel gave no timetable on how long Edwards would be sidelined. Cleveland's second preseason game is on the road Monday, Aug. 18 against the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants.

The Browns made three roster moves, waiving safety Steve Cargile and signing safeties Travis Key and Brandon Mitchell. Mitchell, 6-foot-3 and 205 pounds, played in 45 games and started 20 for Ohio State. He spent last season on the Houston Texans practice squad, but was released on July 31. Key, 5-10 and 185 pounds, is a rookie from Michigan State who played in 40 career games for the Spartans.
