Jurevicius Has Second Surgery on Knee


Things are not looking so hot when it comes to Browns WR Joe Jurevicius being ready to go for training camp July 23rd in Berea, Ohio.  The Browns second WR had further surgery on his knee Monday to clean it out.  It’s the second such knee surgery that he’s had this offseason, and reports say that the wide receiver has had ongoing swelling and discomfort in his knee.

The procedure for the receiver was done at the Cleveland Clinic. The Browns web site stated that no determination has been made on Joe’s status for training camp.  It was just at the last camp that Jurevicius was near mad that there were reports he wouldn’t be ready for camp, and it was in interviews with the media that he insisted he would be ready for camp.

Last season Jurevicius caught 50 passes for 614 yards and three touchdowns.  While he right now is the second WR in Cleveland, he knows his time is coming to be a backup, as the team went out and gave a big deal to WR Donte Stallworth, who will likely take Jurevicius’ place as the teams # 2 WR as long as he’s out of the lineup.
