NFL News: Browns’ Robertson suffered knee sprain in Sunday’s loss

Browns inside linebacker Craig Robertson reportedly suffered a knee sprain in Sunday’s loss to the Bengals.

Scott Petrak of The Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports that Robertson underwent an MRI on Monday and could miss practice time this week if results turn up anything that would require rest. Tank Carder replaced Robertson on Sunday and would likely draw the start opposite D’Qwell Jackson if he misses time.

On the season, Robertson—among the league’s top 15 in total snaps—has been credited with 65 tackles, three sacks and one forced fumble. His best game of the year was arguably three weeks ago in Kansas City where he had 11 tackles and a sack. Unfortunately for Roberston and the Browns, he has ranked among the worst in the league when it comes to pass coverage, allowing 89.6 percent of passes to be caught by men whom he is responsible for. Only Arizona’s Carlos Dansby has been targeted more often this season.
