Cameron has a concussion
December 18, 2013 - Mike McLain
CLEVELAND -- The concussion syndrome has hit Browns tight end Jordan Cameron.
Cameron is in the NFL's concussion protocol program from an injury suffered last Sunday against the Chicago Bears. He didn't practice Wednesday and probably won't play Sunday on the road against the New York Jets.
Coach Rob Chudzinski isn't certain when Cameron was hurt. Cameron was able to finish the game, but he left the locker room quickly without speaking to reporters.
The injury will result in more playing time for Gary Barnidge. MarQueis Gray, who's making the switch from quarterback to tight end, could also see an increase in playing time.
The loss of Cameron would be a big blow to the offense. He leads the team in receptions with 75, one more than receiver Josh Gordon and one less than Jimmy Graham of the New Orleans Saints. Graham leads all NFL tight ends in catches.
Chudzinski included Cameron on a list of a few players that have made big strides this season and as a reason why he believes better times are ahead. Cameron has 848 receiving yards and was on target to reach the 1,000-yard mark. His highest total in two previous seasons was 226 in 2012.
The injury is another in a long line of injuries that have hit the offense at the skilled positions. Quarterbacks Brandon Weeden, Brian Hoyer and Jason Campbell have all been hurt at different times, undermining any chance of sustaining consistency on the offensive side.
