    Joe Jurevicius likely will start the 2008 season on PUP list

    In an interview Thursday morning with Cleveland radio station WTAM, Browns general manager Phil Savage said Jurevicius' most recent knee surgery performed on June 30 will cause him to miss extended time. If he is placed on the PUP list, Jurevicius will have to sit out the first six weeks of the regular season.

    Although the Browns are only confirming two surgeries, the procedure was at least the third performed on Jurevicius' knee in the past seven months after he contracted a staph infection following his initial surgery.

    "It's been pretty frustrating for everybody because this started as an innocent knee scope back in January, and it's morphed itself into multiple procedures," Savage said in the radio interview Thursday. "Obviously every time he's taken a step forward, it's been two steps back. So it's a bit up in the air right now ... He's going to be looked at again obviously next week before we get started and probably will start on that PUP list."

    Jurevicius, 33, had one of the best seasons of his career in 2007. He played in all 16 games for the Browns and caught 50 passes for 614 yards and three touchdowns.

    The Cleveland native signed a four-year contract with the Browns in 2006 but said he plans to retire after this season. He wanted to come back for one more year to see if he could help lead his hometown team to the postseason.

    I don't know what is worse now, the depth at CB or the depth at WR.

    At corner (after trading Leigh Bodden and losing Davin Holly to injury), they only have Jereme Perry, A.J. Davis, Gerard Lawson, Darnell Terrell, and Terry Cousin behind young starters Eric Wright and Brandon McDonald.

    At WR (after this Jurevicius injury), they only have Syndric Steptoe, Travis Wilson, Steve Sanders, Paul Hubbard, and return specialist Joshua Cribbs behind starters Braylon Edwards and Donte Stallworth (and Donte only put up 46-697-3 in perhaps the greatest passing offense the NFL has ever seen last year).

    If I were an NFL Free Agent, no way in hell do I go to Cleveland. Another NFL player has suffered a staph infection as a result of the teams medical care. This is getting ridiculous...

    Just breaks my heart to pieces when a "marquee" baller goes down, but since the stains have already convinced themselves again they have it all won before the season started they wont miss him much.
