Chud is talking to the press right now, and he just announced that Lauvao will have surgery on his ankle (today) and will miss some of the regular season. Only source right now is twitter:

Quote:
Tom Reed ‏@treed1919 2m
Chud said Lauvao will have surgery today. Won't disclose nature of ankle injury other than to say no broken bones.

Tom Reed ‏@treed1919 11m
Chud said RG Shawn Lauvao will have left ankle scoped and he ill miss time early in the regular season. #Browns

https://twitter.com/treed1919

Chud said he was pleased how Pinkston played at RG. Said he kept him in there longer than the other starting O-linemen to boost his conditioning.

Hurry back Shawn.

I don't think this will hurt us much unless other injuries arise at the guard position, knock on wood.



Kerry Wood struggled with his control later in his career.

How did Pinkston and the other guards look last night?

Pinkston looked fine. Not great, but fine. I thought he got a little better as the game went on, as I thought he looked a little slow right at the beginning. He stayed on and played with the 2nd team to get some extra reps at RG.

I thought Garrett Gilkey was really good, especially since it was his 1st pro experience. With Lauvao out for a while, his chances of making the roster just went up. And based on how he looked so far, that's a good thing. You'd never know he was a 7th round draft pick from Chadron State. He's someone to watch for the rest of preseason, for sure.

I think it's possible we draft this big feller:


Cyril Richardson, Baylor

6"5, 335lbs, mean boi

Lauvao (sp?) has done some nice run blocking but generally has been mediocre so far.

Much higher on Pinkston, and maybe soon Gilkey. Gilkey looks like he has some mean in him.

Kid is a player. He's got the mobility to get to the 2nd level, and he's smart enough to know what to do when he gets there.

After putting that game on film, there is no chance he'll clear waivers if they try to sneak him on the Practice Squad. Which would be an absurd thing to do, since he'll be our starting guard before long.

I think Norv has his next Kris Deilman.

Wow. I only snippets of the game since I was at work. Was Gilkey truly this impressive, or was he just playing against scrubs?

Especially coming from Chadron State. Everyone he faces is better than anyone he's ever faced, but he was up to the task physically and mentally. It was impressive.

I went on record very soon after the draft, after talking to some real football people who really like Gilkey. I'm not saying he is a probowler, but I would be surprised if he doesn't make this team and contribute at some point. By all accounts, a very hard worker and physically can handle this level of play. We shall see...I have been very critical of our guard play outside of Greco.

I remember that. Thought you might be a wee bit crazy, but it turns out you're only as crazy as the rest of us.
