Browns LB Gocong Injuries Achillies, Team Fears Could Miss the Season

It was a scary sight earlier today in Berea, as Browns LB Chris Gocong injured his Achilles, and right away the thought is that the veteran is going to miss the entire 2012 season.

The Cleveland Browns suffered their first major injury of training camp and it could be a “huge hit” to their defense.

The Browns fear that outside linebacker Chris Gocong injured his Achilles and is out for the season, sources told the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Gocong, who was carted off the field, will undergo an MRI on Saturday.

“It would be a huge hit,” linebacker D’Qwell Jackson told the Plain Dealer. “Chris is a great player.”

While this is the first serious injury of Browns training camp, this isn’t the first issue for the Cleveland defense. If Gocong is out, the Browns likely will start three backups in their front seven for the first part of the regular season.
