Browns lose Tashaun Gipson but could get Jordan Cameron back

The Browns could have Jordan Cameron against the Bills, but star safety Tashaun Gipson is out, maybe for good this season.

The Cleveland Browns will be without starting free safety Tashaun Gipson for the foreseeable future. Gipson suffered an MCL sprain that will cost him 6+ weeks, meaning he could miss the rest of the season, even if Cleveland makes it to the playoffs.

You could see the pain not only in Gipson’s face but among his entire team when the safety went down with a knee injury in the fourth quarter against the Falcons. No player on the Browns roster has exceeded expectations like Gipson with his NFL-leading six interceptions.

With Gipson out, the Browns will have to rely on Jim Leonhard to start at FS alongside strong safety Donte Whitner, which still makes for a formidable safety tandem.

The good news for Cleveland is they could get tight end Jordan Cameron back this week. Cameron suffered a concussion in Week 8 and hasn't played since, but the belief is he'll return this week to play against the Buffalo Bills. Cameron has 13 catches for 250 yards and one score in six games this year.
