Browns' Mohamed Massaquoi Sent Home From Practice Due To Concussion

The big injury news on Monday for the Cleveland Browns was the fact that both Peyton Hillis and Montario Hardesty were ruled out for next week's game against the St. Louis Rams on Sunday. Slightly overlooked was the fact that Mohamed Massaquoi was sent home from the Browns headquarters with lingering concussion symptoms. Head coach Pat Shurmur told reporters that he takes concussions very seriously, and it's not likely Massaquoi would have even been given a chance to do anything on Monday.

Massquoi suffered a concussion against the Seattle Seahawks two weeks ago and was repeatedly sent home from practice leading up to the game against the 49ers. He ended up missing the game, but was cleared to play this past Sunday against the Houston Texans. However, Massaquoi left the game in the third quarter with lingering symptoms, and the reports were that he was "woozy" after some contact. He finished the game without a reception, and the Browns will surely evaluate him multiple times before clearing him to play again.
