Default McGinest Out At Least 6 Weeks After Surgery

The shots just keep coming for the Browns:

Browns' McGinest will miss six weeks with back surgery
Associated Press


BEREA, Ohio -- Browns linebacker Willie McGinest was scheduled to have back surgery Thursday and will miss at least six weeks, another blow to a Cleveland team decimated by major injuries the past few seasons.

McGinest, who has made 159 starts during a 13-year NFL career, was to have the operation in Los Angeles.

After a week of rest following the procedure on a bulging disk, he'll begin rehab and the Browns will re-evaluate McGinest in six weeks, coach Romeo Crennel said.

The 35-year-old McGinest signed as a free agent before last season after winning three Super Bowls with the New England Patriots.

Losing McGinest wasn't the only blow on Thursday for the Browns. Backup linebacker Matt Stewart had surgery to repair a torn muscle in his left shoulder and will likely be placed on injured reserve.

Crennel said inside linebacker Chaun Thompson will move to the outside. Thompson started 15 games for the Browns at outside linebacker in 2005. Antwan Peek worked with Cleveland's first-team defense during practice.

McGinest has been dealing with back issues for several seasons. Earlier this week he asked the Browns for permission to see his personal physician in California.

Crennel said there are no immediate plans to put McGinest on injured reserve.

"He's going to come back and we're going to try to get him ready to play the rest of the season," he said. "Backs are backs and they are fickle sometimes. But after the first six weeks we'll see how the rehab is going and that will be an indicator as how soon he'll be back."

When I first saw this I thought it said McGahee (sp). Got a little excited, then POP, excitement went away. Don't wish injuries on anybody, but hey, it's part of the game!

Man, talk about some crappy luck with the injury bug. Hopefully we can stay healthy through the entire preseason.

You gotta feel a little bad for McGinest he has always been a stand up guy and for him to have to finish his career with the browns was bad enough now he is hurt. Too bad for Willie but at his age getting back surgery doesn't bod well. I have a feeling he is going to miss alot more than 6 weeks this year.

they hired mcginest more for his veteran presence and leadership... sure this sucks, but chaun thompson is a beast (6-2 255) and he'll step up... injuries are part of the game, the browns know that better than most teams.

McGahee won't be injured UNTIL he plays us.
He's not the powerback the Ravens are going to need.
Our D should "squish him, just like grape."
