Cleveland Browns discover that newly signed receiver has torn ACL

Well it looks like the Cleveland Browns will take yet another blow and lose someone else for the remainder of the season.

First they lost starting quarterback Brian Hoyer when he was making the Cleveland Browns look like a better football team, now they lose recently signed wide receiver Charles Johnson has a torn ACL himself.

Johnson suffered an MCL injury earlier this year as he was a member of the Green Bay Packers. A seventh round rookie who could have seen some playing time in four wide receiver sets with the Cleveland Browns.

The Browns noticed the issue during Johnson’s physically after he was signed off the Packers practice squad. He’ll end up on the non-football injury list and the Browns will once again look for a possible replacement player.

Hopefully they can find someone who doesn’t already have a season ending injury as I’m sure the front-office doesn’t like to throw their money away. Next season he should be able to compete for a slot position if he can manage to keep his knees healthy.
