08/10/15 - LB Barkevious Mingo, the sixth pick of the 2013 draft, is recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery that probably will force him to miss the entire preseason. Mingo sustained a torn labrum in his right shoulder on the second play of the 2014 regular season. He suffered a bruised lung on kick coverage in the second game of the preseason his rookie year.
"You always (feel sorry), especially for a guy that works that hard, that is that quality a character, an individual that it's important to him and he puts the time in," Coach Mike Pettine said. "Unfortunately, you have some guys that get some unfortunate injuries but you root for guys like that to come back and play well."

09/29/14 - LB Barkevious Mingo is still looking for his first sack. He missed the game against New Orleans with a shoulder injury that Pettine says is still bothering him.
"I'm pleased with where Mingo is," assistant linebackers coach Brian Fleury said. "We're asking him to do some different things than what he did last year. He's in coverage a lot more than he is going after the quarterback. I know there've been some questions as to why the sack numbers aren't there, and I think it's just simply a reflection of the amount of reps he's had rushing the quarterback relative to everybody else."

Although Mingo has practiced on a limited basis this week, Browns coach Rob Chudzinski said Friday that the No. 6 overall draft pick will not play because of the bruised lung he sustained during the preseason.
Mingo was injured during the Aug. 15 preseason game against the Detroit Lions. He experienced shortness of breath and spit up blood, and spent two nights in a hospital.
How he suffered the injury remains a mystery. He was not hit hard on the chest nor did he break a rib.

Mingo, the sixth overall pick in the 2013 draft, hasn't been allowed to practice in two weeks. He was injured Aug. 15 in a preseason game against the Detroit Lions and spent 48 hours in the hospital. Two independent doctors not treating Mingo said the risk of returning from the injury before being fully healed is extreme.
Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski hasn't ruled out placing Mingo on the physically unable to perform list, which would idle the pass-rushing specialist for at least six weeks before he could be activated.
"We have no timetable," Chudzinski said.
Mingo's current physical activity is limited to light running workouts.

08/19/13 - A doctor told the Cleveland Plain Dealer that Cleveland Browns rookie Barkevious Mingo, who sustained a bruised lung during last week's preseason game, could have died.
Dr. Clark Fuller, Director of Thoracic Surgery at Saint John's Health Center in Santa Monica, Calif., has not treated Mingo, but said if he had remained in Thursday's 24–6 victory over the Detroit Lions and taken another hit to the chest, it could have killed him.
Fuller said Mingo had already torn at least some small blood vessels, "and if you tear some larger ones, the chest cavity is an area where you could bleed to death and nobody ever sees a drop of blood on the ground."
Mingo is expected to be ready in time for the Browns' regular-season opener Sept. 8 against the visiting Miami Dolphins.
08/18/13 - LB Barkevious Mingo was released from a hospital Saturday. Mingo was hospitalized for two nights because of a bruised lung he sustained during Thursday's preseason game against the Detroit Lions. It is not known if he will be able to play during the remainder of the preseason but should be ready for the regular season opener Sept. 8 against the Miami Dolphins. Mingo is scheduled to have X-rays on Monday, at which point a more specific prognosis will be made.
