According to Cleveland Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski, tight end Jordan Cameron came in Monday reporting that he had concussion-like symptoms. It is unclear when the injury was sustained in the game against the Chicago Bears, but Cameron is now in the NFL’s concussion protocol. His status becomes doubtful for the game against the New York Jets this week and may want to air on the side of caution and hold him out the last game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Cameron has been one of the Browns biggest weapons this season and become a great 1-2 punch with wide receiver Josh Gordon. Cameron is leading the team in receptions with 75, is second on the team in receiving yards with 848 and second with 7 receiving touchdowns. He was also able to have an impressive 234 yards after the catch and 45 first downs this season.
Cameron appears to have a bright future in Cleveland, but the big question facing the Browns is who will be the quarterback getting him the ball next season. But with the concussion and the seriousness of concussions, it may be the best move to just shut Cameron down the last two games of the year. The Browns are 4-10 and while Cameron likely wants back on the field, the long term is more important for both Cameron and the Browns.
