Browns fear torn triceps for Joe Thomas

The three-point loss to Tennessee may be a footnote from Sunday after the Cleveland Browns get word on Joe Thomas’ arm injury. According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the team fears that Thomas suffered a triceps tear and could miss the rest of the season.

Thomas saw his consecutive snap streak of 10,363 come to an end on Sunday after sustaining an arm injury midway through the game.

“It’s an out of body experience,” Thomas said of the injury. “I think you have an idea of what happened at least, and you are trying to to figure out if it’s something you can continue on with if you can keep playing. Effectively, I did not have any function in my left arm. I think you can play with about 30-t0-40 percent function in one arm, but when you have no function, it is hard to block edge rushers with only one hand.”

That the eventual first-ballot Hall of Famer would have continued playing with one-third of the function in his arm says everything you need to know.

Regarding his streak, Thomas stated that he knew it would have to come to an end at some point — “It was not an infinity streak,” he stated after the game — but stated that he just wished he would have been able to be out there with the Browns as they fell in overtime to the Titans.

WFNY will provide updates as they begin to bubble up.

    It’s a shame, but it had to happen eventually. I’m not sure what this means for old Joe. It wasn’t a freak accident or something. He might just be getting to that point in his career. 馃檨

    Do not go gentle into that good night,
    Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
    Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

    Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
    Because their words had forked no lightning they
    Do not go gentle into that good night.

    Joe… please listen to your Uncle Dylan. See you next season.

    We’re looking at 0-16. I don’t see one winnable game. And now we see how valuable Thomas is after Kessler ran for his life.

    I wonder what we could have gotten for him in a trade over the past 18 months.

  • tigersbrowns2

    hi JM … the Ravens & Bears games look winnable to me.

  • JM85

    Hahahaha. Oh wait you鈥檙e serious?

    I’m guessing a package that would eventually turn into the entire 4th round of the 2025 draft.

    All guys still more likely to play in the playoffs with Cleveland than Joe Thomas.

  • RGB

    For other teams after we cut them.

    1% still beats zero.
