The Cleveland Browns got a big win Sunday over the Pittsburgh Steelers but may have suffered a big loss as well. Pro Bowl center Alex Mack may have suffered a broken leg that will end his season, according to multiple reports.
Mack was anchoring one of the best offensive lines in football, as evidenced by the 158 rushing yards and no sacks allowed vs. the Steelers.
The New York Jets can't catch a break with their depleted secondary. After watching Peyton Manning and the Broncos torch them through the air, New york learned that they may be without cornerback Dee Milliner for the rest of the season.
The former first-round pick exited Sunday's game against Denver after suffering an injury during a first-quarter field-goal attempt. Milliner immediately grabbed at his leg and had to be helped off the field by team personnel. He was quickly ruled out for a return. After the game, coach Rex Ryan only confirmed it was an Achilles injury.
However, reports are that it's a torn Achilles tendon.
The belief is that #Jets CB Dee Milliner has torn his Achilles, source says. Tests to confirm tomorrow. Would be season-ending.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) October 12, 2014
Sources tell me that Dee Milliner's Achilles is ruptured. Tested on field. Any further tests just confirmation ahead of surgery.— Will Carroll (@injuryexpert) October 12, 2014
This is the last thing the 1-5 Jets needed to hear.
