Tony Grossi of ESPN Cleveland.com reports that the Browns James-Michael Johnson is likely to miss a month of action.
Johnson reportedly suffered an oblique injury during Thursday night’s game against the Chicago Bears, while he made a tackle on FB Tyler Clutts. Johnson continued playing, but wound up limping off the field on the next play. Initial reports suggest that he would be out for the first four weeks.
This a tough loss to an already depleted defensive unit. So far, they have lost Chris Gocong due to injury (season ending) and Scott Fujita’s suspension (Bounty Gate), and DT Phil Taylor. Expect Cleveland to be monitoring the waiver wire for some much needed help.
