Browns' Steinbach Sprains Right Knee; McGinest Sees Doctor for Back
BEREA, Ohio (AP) - Browns offensive guard Eric Steinbach has sprained his right knee by falling on it during practice.
Steinbach was Cleveland's biggest free-agent signing during the off-season. He hurt the knee at an indoor workout today and walked off the field without a limp, escorted by a team trainer. Steinbach did not return.
Before an MRI and other tests were performed, coach Romeo Crennel guessed that Steinbach had only bruised his knee. Crennel is expected to give an update on Steinbach's condition tomorrow as well as one on linebacker Willie McGinest.
The 35-year-old missed two days of practice this week after complaining of tightness in his back. He was given permission to see his personal physician in Los Angeles.
