The Injury Bug Has Derailed Cleveland Browns’ Dream Season

The Cleveland Browns organization had high hopes before entering the 2021-’22 season. Fast forward to the present time, and the Browns are just hoping to climb out of the AFC North cellar. With the news of numerous injuries on the offensive side of the ball, will the Browns’ dreams of a successful season turn into a nightmare?

The Browns are coming off their second straight loss of the season, after the Arizona Cardinals dismantled Cleveland on their home turf, 37-14. In the process of defeat, Baker Mayfield took more abuse on his already injured non-throwing shoulder that has now ruled him out of Cleveland’s game this Thursday.

Mayfield isn’t the only offensive piece who will be out when the team plays the Denver Broncos on Thursday.

Odell Beckham Jr. has once again found himself on the injured list alongside Browns receiver Jarvis Landry. The new starting quarterback for the Browns, Case Keenum, will be without the team’s top two receivers and top two running threats with injuries to Chubb and Hunt.

Points could be hard to come by for a team desperately clinging to the idea of back-to-back playoff appearances. A loss Thursday night will more than likely have Browns fans having that sinking feeling of “here we go again.”

A franchise that seemed on the rise is, unfortunately, dealing with a severe injury bug.
