It would appear, though, that the 2009 season is off to an '08-like beginning. As camp begins in Berea, Ohio, the Cleveland Browns' top receiving target is on the "non-football injury" list. If you're looking for answers as to how he fell injured, good luck. We do know Braylon failed a physical, but we don't know what caused the injury or even what the injury is.
What happened? Edwards was asked.So, yeah, Braylon's hurt. It's hard to speculate much beyond that, but it doesn't seem like a serious injury that can put his season in jeopardy -- otherwise we'd know more details. We do know how much worse he's been in seasons where he missed part of camp, and that's happening again this year.
"Talk to coach Mangini about that and see what he says," he replied.
Did it happen playing pickup basketball, as rumored?
"Talk to coach Mangini."
"He has an injury," Mangini said.
Did the injury occur on or off the field?
"We're not going to directly address the specifics of any injury. I understand the need to ask it, but I hope you can respect that," Mangini said.
Don't worry about Braylon's psyche, though. Via Twitter, you can see he's awfully torn up over missing the start of camp. As "B_easy17" tells us, "what it look like" is he's training to become a liquor distributor. Check out the stash of all that high-end hooch. I'll pass on the "is that how they teach grammar in Ann Arbor" jokes and just let the picture do the talking. For many players, training camp is a time to get serious about the season ahead and put the offseason fun behind them. For Braylon, it's apparently time to spend hundreds of dollars in a liquor store and nurse those mysterious injuries.
