Late Friday afternoon in a conference call Cleveland head coach Rob Chudzinski gave updates on the players hurt in Thursday’s win over the Detroit Lions.
“Dion Lewis, as I mentioned last night, has a fibula fracture. It’s going to require surgery. That has not been scheduled yet.”
“Barkevious Mingo has a bruised lung. He felt better this morning. He stayed overnight in the hospital. We are going to keep him over another night as a precautionary measure; a little bit too early to give you any estimates as to where it stands.”
Chudzinski was unsure whether Mingo’s injury was on one hit or if it was a collection of hits. He did say that Mingo did not have any rib injuries.
“Jason Pinkston has a high-ankle sprain. There’s a chance he will be out in the early part of the regular season. We will just have to see how that goes.”
“Gary Barnidge has a shoulder sprain. We are expecting him to be back next week; he will be day-to-day.”
“Brandon Bogotay has a groin strain. He will be day-to-day. We won’t expect him out too long. He had a good night. I would have liked to see him go into the second half. His kickoffs were good. The last one, I think, is where he tweaked his groin, rolling off to the left a little bit.”
