Reggie Hodges season ends, before it begins


Another Brown is down.

Reggie Hodges tore his Achilles tendon at Tuesday's practice during a non-contact drill.  He will need surgery and miss the entire 2011 season.

Hodges averaged almost 44 yards per punt last season.

It's not known who will replace Hodges.  Currently there is no other punter in training camp.

However, the Browns will have Rob Long tryout on Wednesday.  Long is a cancer survivor who punted for Syracuse University last year.  He was named to the first-team 2010 All Big East team.
