Browns cornerback lacerates liver in practice; recovering at hospital

Stefanski on Johnson injury

CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Browns cornerback Kevin Johnson has a lacerated liver and will miss part of training camp.

The team announced Johnson was admitted to University Hospital Thursday afternoon with an abdominal injury.

Johnson is said to be resting comfortably.

Head coach Kevin Stefanski termed the injury “unlucky” but wouldn’t speculate if Johnson was a candidate to be placed on injured reserve.

Johnson, who signed a 1-year deal with Cleveland, was a 1st-round pick of the Texans back in 2015.

The Browns had already lost RB Nick Chubb to a concussion and LB Mack Wilson to a knee injury.
