BEREA: Browns Pro Bowl tight end Jordan Cameron is being guided through the NFL’s concussion protocol.
Cameron left the game Sunday with a concussion —his third documented one in less than two years — with 7:31 left in the second quarter. He caught a 21-yard pass over the middle from Brian Hoyer and took a shot from safety Brandian Ross.
If the Browns hope to be in the playoff picture as the season progresses, a win at home Sunday over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will likely be a necessity because the schedule is going to become much more difficult in a hurry.
CLEVELAND: Quarterback Brian Hoyer sat in a meeting led by offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan on the eve of the Browns’ game Sunday against the Oakland Raiders and became convinced they would bounce back from their demoralizing loss last week to the previously winless Jacksonville Jaguars.
1. The Browns must push aside the disappointment that was the 24-6 loss last week against the previously winless Jacksonville Jaguars. Tashaun Gipson’s two interceptions in Jacksonville proved to be the bright spot during an otherwise forgettable performance by the Browns. The Raiders are winless, and the host Browns need to keep it that way and take advantage of a schedule that brings the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1-5) to Cleveland next Sunday.
0 The number of times an NFL team has lost to winless opponents in back-to-back weeks in Week 7 or later. The Browns lost to the winless Jacksonville Jaguars last week and hope to bounce back against the winless Oakland Raiders.
Twenty-five years after the humiliating moment, Craig Ehlo’s wound has healed.
The frequent ribbing, the endless questions, even a college player’s re-enactment of “The Shot,” morphed from annoyance to flattery. Ehlo, the former Cavs guard, has come to enjoy discussing his futile effort to defend Chicago Bulls star Michael Jordan’s game-winning jumper in the deciding first-round game of the 1989 Eastern Conference playoffs.
