Default Browns lose LB for season

offense can only carry you so far.. right now the browns are looking dangerously low at LB and DB depth.

Peek has surgery, will miss the season
Zac Jackson, Staff Writer
09.04.2008

Browns linebacker Antwan Peek suffered a torn patella tendon in his knee during Wednesday's practice and is out for the season.

Browns coach Romeo Crennel said the injury occurred on a "freak" play during practice and that Peek was having surgery to repair the tendon Thursday morning.

Peek will be placed on injured-reserve. The Browns plan to re-sign Shantee Orr, who was released last weekend, to replace Peek.

Crennel said the team hopes to have Orr signed in time for him to participate in Thursday's practice. He said both Orr and rookie Alex Hall will play in Sunday's season opener against the Cowboys.

Peek had 4 sacks last year, his first with the Browns.

Peek wasn't going to perform well anyways, because he's supposed to be a speed rusher...and his leg injuries have prevented him from having the necessary burst to excel in that role.

I'm beginning to believe that - season-ending knee injury in practice? Ouch.

Doesn't look good for the Browns. Peek is supposedly one of their best Linebackers.

But this is the NFL. Anything can happen. Cleveland isn't exactly playing the Doomsday Defense over there in Dallas. And we all know Tony Romo is a choker.

That's a much as a shot of optimism I can throw out to Cleveland.

that sucks, I really wanted the steelers to face the browns healthy, but that seems like an impossible feat

hopefully they can still beat the cowboys, cause after that they're in for some pain

Peek might have had a chance to be a good linebacker if he could have ever stayed healthy. Even last season, he spent more time riding the pine than playing effective football. I was counting on him being 100% for maybe 4 games this season.

6-10 for the Browns this year. Andersen has more picks than TD's.
