OL Yates done for the year; LB Fujita out a few weeks

The Browns have lost offensive lineman Billy Yates for the season with a bicep injury. “Billy Yates got hurt yesterday,” Eric Mangini said today. “His bicep doesn’t look real good, probably going to be out the rest of the season. His bicep, It looks like he’s heading to IR.”

Another play that could be gone for awhile is linebacker Scott Fujita, as he has a knee ligament injury.

“Could be a little while,” Mangini said. “I don’t really know what the time frame is yet. It’s still really early, but probably going to be a little while. I’ll have a better idea as we go along. His knee, yes I guess it’s a ligament.”

The Browns expect wide receiver Josh Cribbs and cornerback Sheldon Brown to play this week.

“I think Sheldon and Josh you’ll probably see later during the week,” Mangini said. “I’m optimistic there with both of those guys.”
