This has been a rough Monday morning for the Browns. Browns defensive end Carl Nassib suffered a broken hand yesterday and will undergo surgery, according to Ian Rapoport of (on Twitter). Meanwhile, starting center Cameron Erving suffered a bruised lung (Twitter link via Mary Kay Cabot of Meanwhile, as we learned earlier, the Browns fear that they will be without quarterback Josh McCown for quite some time. Carl Nassib (vertical)

Nassib, a Penn State product, put himself on the NFL map in 2015 when he racked up 15.5 sacks, 46 tackles, and 19.5 tackles for a loss. Cleveland had high hopes for the defensive end after snagging him in the third round of this year’s draft, but this latest setback could keep him out for a while. Nassib suffered the injury during the second half of Browns’ 25-20 loss to the Ravens on Sunday.

There’s currently no timetable for Erving, but the expectation is that he’ll be out for at least a month. Thankfully, the center was released from the hospital earlier today. Erving was selected with the No. 19 overall pick in the 2015 draft. As a rookie, Erving appeared in all 16 regular season games with four starts.

    Horrible team with horrible luck.

    Maybe they can trade those picks back to Philly for Wentz?

      After 1 game! Jesus christ Wentz played against a young horrible rookie defense! He’s not marching down the field on Chicago and scoring touchdowns on every drive.

      In a few years, you’ll look like a complete idiot. Corey “Antonio Brown” Coleman will be better than Carson”Ryan Leaf” Wentz

        Carson Wentz is already better then Ryan Leaf ever was on any day in his NFL career. And pump the breaks on an Antonio Brown comp. Coleman is more Steve Smith then Brown… Obviously not a bad thing. But QBs make the league go round and starting a 6′ rookie who wasn’t real good in college compared to Wentz makes u sound like a fan boy.
