Browns tight end has been ruled out again; Not looking good for his future

cameronJordan Cameron has missed three consecutive games due to a concussion.  The Browns standout tight end in 2013, has been horrible this year, and unfortunately he will miss his fourth consecutive game.

A week ago, Cleveland Browns coach Mike Pettine didn’t know if concussion issues would allow Jordan Cameron to play again this season. The tight end returned to practice Friday after missing the last three games.

Per the NFL’s concussion protocol, graduating to practice doesn’t necessarily mean that Cameron has been cleared for contact or game action, and The Plain Dealer reported that the pass-catcher has still been ruled out for Sunday’s bout with the Atlanta Falcons.

This is not a very good thing, because Cameron is missing a lot of time for a concussion. Meaning the tight end might not be passing the tests.  If you remember correctly, Jahvid Best the former Lions running back had to call it quits early because he could not pass the tests.  Hopefully that is not the case for Cameron but it is not looking good.

derekDerek Carr pulled off his first victory as an NFL quarterback last night, and his teammates were excited.  James Jones, who scored the game winning touchdown was on NFL AM this morning and talked up his rookie quarterback by saying he is mature.

“Carr’s an unbelievable leader,” the receiver said. “He’s one of those young guys that acts like he’s 30 already. He has a great feel for the team, great feel for the game. He’s gonna be a special player.”

Jones went on to talk about his first meetings with Carr, and called him Mini Aaron Rodgers. 

“When I was in Green Bay, and he was at Fresno State, my receivers coach, Keith Williams, used to coach at Fresno State, so I always used to go there to train,” Jones explained. “And I used to catch balls from Derek, and worked out with Derek, and I started calling him ‘Baby Aa-Rod’ at Fresno State. This kid has all the potential in the world to be a special player, so I’m glad we finally got him on the winning side last night.”
