Browns S Tashaun Gipson To Miss 6-8 Weeks With MCL Sprain

ESPN’s Adam Caplan is reporting that Browns S Tashaun Gipson is expected to miss 6-8 weeks after he suffered an MCL sprain during Sunday’s win over the Falcons.

  • Ian Rapoport mentions that Gipson did not sustain any damage to his ACL and he could return for playoffs if the Browns elect to keep him active.

Even though Gipson isn’t done for the season, this is still pretty bad news for a guy who had been playing at a really high level this season.

Gipson left the game after he collided with CB Joe Haden. He made an attempt to leave the field under his own power, but he immediately fell to the ground clutching his right knee and had to be carted off the field.

Gipson, 24, is in the final year of his three-year, $1.44 million rookie contract and is set to be a restricted free agent next season. He has recorded 52 tackles, six interceptions, a forced fumble, eight pass defenses and even scored a touchdown over the course of 11 games.

Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 4 safety in the league out of 83 qualifying players.
