Browns CB Daven Holly injured knee, may miss season.

TFour-year veteran Daven Holly, who was competing for the starting job, recently suffered a severe knee injury during organized team activities. The timeline for his recovery is unknown, but the team says it is possible Holly could miss most or all of the 2008 season.

Holly was injured while competing for a jump ball Tuesday with receiver Braylon Edwards, who also suffered a hip pointer on the play and is listed as day-to-day.

Holly took the brunt of the play, landing awkwardly on his left knee.

Holly suffered cartilage and ligament damage in the left knee, and general manager Phil Savage said the surgery will most likely be Friday.

"Obviously it doesn't look good for him," Savage said of Holly. "It takes a couple hours to kind of get your head around the fact that we're probably going to be looking for another corner, if we weren't already doing so."

Edwards suffered a hip pointer on the play, didn't practice Wednesday and is listed as day-to-day.

Cornerback is Cleveland's most pressing need this offseason. Just last week, the team released veteran cornerback Kenny Wright because of an off-field incident, and in March the team traded last year's starter, Leigh Bodden, to the Detroit Lions.

Holly was expected to compete with second-year player Brandon McDonald, who now is penciled in as the starter opposite Eric Wright. The Browns also will look into signing a free agent at the position or explore possible trades.


Ben could have some big games against Cleveland this year.

This is great news for Steelers fans.....the Shitstains have one cornerback who is now fucking crippled, and the other cornerback can't even outrun a fat-ass, doughnut eating cop. Classic.

Leigh Boden in exchange for a whale..

good trade Brownies..

and now your new #1 & 2 are gone.. one so slow he can't outrun a cop and the others knee goes pop pop pop

so lets see..

Ward, Holmes, Miller, Washington, Sweed, and Spaeth vs. your JV team

haa haa..

once the Browns, always the Browns.. and yet the playoff talk continues on their part..

maybe now the BMX Bandit Winslow will try to out jump Robbie Knievel and make it a really fun off season!
