Browns LB Mack Wilson suffered a "significant" hyperextension of his left knee in practice Tuesday, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. Cleveland.com reports that Wilson doesn't yet know whether he'll need surgery, but he tweeted Wednesday like a guy who expects to be out a while: "A lot of emotions running through my head rn ... 5ive1 will be back and better with an even bigger chip on my shoulder I promise you." We'll see about the specifics on Wilson's condition. For now, though, you shouldn't be drafting him in IDP leagues. Cleveland faces a muddle at LB now, with rookie Jacob Phillips, 2nd-year man Sione Takitaki and free-agent addition B.J. Goodson among the leading options for playing time.

Browns LB Mack Wilson won't need surgery on his hyperextended left knee, according to multiple reports. He's expected to be ready some time this season, but the Browns expect to miss the starting LB for at least another month. Wilson's absence looks like it'll mean more playing time for LBs Sione Takitaki and Jacob Phillips. Each carries 3-down potential in a fairly shallow defense that has dealt with injuries at every level.
