Mangini Says He Expects Cribbs to Play Sunday

Despite the obvious issues with the play that knocked him out, there appears to be some good news about the outcome of the hit on Josh Cribbs from Monday night. Today, coach Eric Mangini said he expects Cribbs to play when the Browns go against the Lions on Sunday.

Cribbs was strapped to a backboard and carted off the field after the last play of the Browns’ 16-0 loss to Baltimore on Monday night. He was briefly hospitalized with a possible neck injury and concussion. “I anticipate Josh playing all of the roles he normally plays this week,” Mangini said.

Mangini says all of the measures taken with Cribbs were precautionary and that all the tests came back negative. Cribbs remains listed as questionable on Thursday’s injury report.

    The man is a professional football player. My concern is beginning to be that Mangini is killing the little talent that does exists on this team. These guys are, it seems to me, anyway, reacting very negatively to something. Due to the consistency of the performances overall, the regression of the QBs specifically, and comments made from established veterans — forget the media — then that something must be very big. From the team’s perspective, Lerner is a virtual no-show as an owner. Kokinis is now gone — but he was also a no-show for his time here. Who remains who was part of the organizational level changes made ast year? Only one person. Hire your football guy, Randy, and let him make the call as to the coach. But, start showing up more, too. This is your investment, after all. I’d sure be pretyy interested if I had a half-B sitting in a sports franchise.
