Man…second year in a row that we’ve had a drafted CB seriously injured right after signing. Good thing for Wilson is that he signed his contract. Good luck to him in his recovery, but,also, get your education kids.
Fourth-round defensive back Howard Wilson will undergo surgery on a fractured patella and is expected to miss a significant amount of time.
Wilson, whom the Browns selected with the 126th overall pick, suffered the injury near the end of Friday’s rookie minicamp practice. He was the only cornerback among the Browns’ 10 draft picks.
“It’s disappointing but this is a part of playing football,” Wilson said. “It was kind of a freak thing. I was just running around and my knee just kind of locked up on me. I didn’t think much of it but the training staff wanted to get the proper testing so I got the MRI. I’m a positive person so I will have the surgery, work hard in my rehab and look forward to getting back to out there and helping this team win some games.”
