The Stains take a pretty big hit to their defense losing one of their starting linebackers the entire season.

Create A League Today!Coach Romeo Crennel said Thursday that Peek ruptured his right patellar tendon while running during Wednesday's workout.

It's a big setback for a Cleveland defense which ranked 30th overall last year and must face the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.

The club will re-sign Shantee Orr, who was waived last week, to fill Peek's roster spot.

Crennel said Orr will likely see playing time Sunday along with rookie Alex Hall, a seventh-round pick who had an impressive training camp and exhibition season.

Peek was signed as an unrestricted free agent in 2007 after spending four seasons with Houston.

Browns linebacker Antwan Peek suffered a torn patella tendon in practice Wednesday and is out for the season. He underwent surgery Thursday morning to repair the tendon, coach Romeo Crennel said.
The Browns re-signed linebacker Shantee Orr to help replace Peek. Orr will see action in the linebacker rotation in Sunday's season opener at Cleveland Browns Stadium against the Dallas Cowboys.

It also means rookie Alex Hall will see playing time behind starting outside linebacker Willie McGinest.

Peek was on track to return from arthroscopic surgery on his right knee July 31st. The Browns were looking forward to a healthy Peek helping to improve the pass rush and take some double-teaming away from Kamerion Wimbley.

I am sure t will be a feel good story about how Alex "Arsenio" Hall made the team and all. However, if the rest of the D fails to live up to its over hyped reputation, Alex Hall too will fail.


Atleast the Browns got your hopes up? :brownssign:

that depends on what your definition of "play" means. being on the field running around like a chicken with his head cut off doesn't count.

I watched the Steelers-Browns opener from last year the other night. Peek was about the only bright spot for them in that particuliar game. He played a good game.

I don't wish injuries on them. I want to kick there asses with all of our starters and all of there starters playing.

Torn patellar tendon...isn't that what derailed Greg Lloyd's career?

After all the injuries the Steelers had at the end of last season such as Willie Parker,Aaron Smith,and even Troy and Ryan Clark I dont feel bad for anybody especially the Browns having guys go down. It sucks when it happens but hey you move on and go with the guys you have much like the Steelers did late last season going into the playoffs when they were 1 4th down and 2 play away from winning a playoff game and advancing to the 2nd round.

Indeed, when teams like the ratbirds cry about injuries or anybody else they get no sympathy from me. It's part of the game, it sux but you have to deal with it. star players going down really tests your depth and you realize how you can or can't live without that certain player or players.

No guarantees there, He is a seventh round pick that has only played against scrubs thus far. He make be a player, but we will have to wait and see.

very true, they are part of the game. I watched tonight's giants-Redskins game. Looks like the Giants might have another defensive starter hurt.

It sucks when any player gets hurt,but to quote Joey Porter " I laugh at your misery " Hey injures are part of the game, good teams overcome them.

It's going to hurt with him gone for the entire season. He's injury prone... but is fairly decent when healthy.

But definetley not our best LB. Kamerion Wimbley is, Alex Hall will eventually.

Thats funny, in the Ohio Lake County New Herald today, Romeo was qouted as saying that Alex Hall has been a great practice player, but has done little on the field, against starting NFL players. Two starts in the preseason, in those two games he has two tackles and one hurry. Thats from Romeo. Remember he is a seventh rounder from a di. 2A school. Impressive? I think not, neither does your head coach/

Last time I checked Casey was a pro bowler, and exactly how many of those do you have on your defense?
