 *Barkevious Mingo Draft Scout Player News Log
12/09/13 - LB Barkevious Mingo sacked Brady. It was his team-best fifth sack of the season.
11/14/13 - LB Barkevious Mingo leads the Browns with four sacks, but he has only one sack in the last five games.
10/01/13 - LB Barkevious Mingo, who missed the first game of the season recovering from a bruised lung, is the first player in Browns history to have a sack in each of his first three career NFL games.
09/16/13 - OLB Barkevious Mingo did not start against the Bengals. He entered on the ninth play of the game with the Ravens facing first-and-10, beat left tackle Bryant McKinnie to the outside and dumped quarterback Joe Flacco for a nine-yard loss. It was the key play in stopping the Ravens' opening drive. Two plays later Justin Tucker was wide right on a field goal attempt from 50 yards. It was Mingo's first play since suffering a bruised lung in the preseason game against the Lions on Aug. 15. With 3:19 left in the second quarter, Mingo drew a holding penalty while rushing Ravens punter Sam Koch. The extra 10 yards gave the Browns the ball on the Cleveland 32. Mingo finished with two tackles and the sack.
09/13/13 - LB Barkevious Mingo is participating fully in practice for the first time since a bruised lung knocked him out of the preseason game against the Lions on Aug. 15. He was listed as probable Friday.
09/13/13 - LB Barkevious Mingo participated fully in practice for the first time since a bruised lung knocked him out of the preseason game against the Lions on Aug. 15.
09/12/13 - LB Barkevious Mingo has been cleared to play against the Ravens. He was limited Wednesday with a bruised lung.
09/09/13 - LB Barkevious Mingo continues to rehab from a bruised lung. He has had no contact in practice since the injury occurred on Aug. 15.
09/07/13 - LB Barkevious Mingo has been ruled out from playing Sunday's season opener against the Miami Dolphins. 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.
09/06/13 - LB Barkevious Mingo (lung) was officially ruled out for Sunday's game. "The doctors have been constantly doing that in that process," coach Rob Chudzinksi said. "We'll hold him out. He's not ready to go yet for this week."
09/05/13 - LB Barkevious Mingo (lung) was limited in practice.
09/02/13 - LB Barkevious Mingo is continuing to rest from practice because of a bruised lung. He has done some light running and worked out in the weight room.
08/29/13 - OLB Barkevious Mingo is unlikely to play in the Cleveland Browns' regular-season opener Sept. 8 against the Miami Dolphins as he continues recovering from a bruised lung. 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.
08/26/13 - LB Barkevious Mingo is out indefinitely with a bruised lung.
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 246 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.
08/16/13 - LB Barkevious Mingo, who suffered a bruised lung in Thursday's game against Detroit, spent another night in the hospital Friday. Mingo is expected to be sideline for at least one or two weeks.
08/16/13 - OLB Barkevious Mingo suffered a bruised lung in Thursday's exhibition win over Detroit, head coach Rob Chudzinski said after the game. Mingo was to spend the night in the hospital, per multiple reports.
07/22/13 - OLB Barkevious Mingo signed a four-year deal with a fifth-year club option with the Cleveland Browns. Financial terms were not disclosed. The 6-foot-4, 240-pound Mingo was the sixth overall pick out of LSU, where he had 15 sacks, 11 passes defensed, four forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries in 40 career games with 15 starts. The Browns want Mingo to start on the right side with Paul Kruger on the left and pressure the quarterback relentlessly. Mingo had eight sacks in 2011 and 4.5 last year, but Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski isn't concerned about the decline. Mingo did very little pass coverage at LSU and will have to learn that with the Browns.
07/21/13 - OLB Barkevious Mingo signed a four-year deal with a fifth-year club option with the Cleveland Browns. Financial terms were not disclosed. The 6-foot-4, 240-pound Mingo was the sixth overall pick out of LSU, where he had 15 sacks, 11 passes defensed, four forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries in 40 career games with 15 starts. The Browns want Mingo to start on the right side with Paul Kruger on the left and pressure the quarterback relentlessly. Mingo had eight sacks in 2011 and 4.5 last year, but Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski isn't concerned about the decline. Mingo did very little pass coverage at LSU and will have to learn that with the Browns.
04/28/13 - A closer look at the Browns' picks: Round 1/6 - Barkevious Mingo, LB, 6-4, 237, LSU...The Browns want Mingo to start on the right side with Paul Kruger on the left and pressure the quarterback relentlessly. Mingo had eight sacks in 2011 and 4.5 last year, but coach Rob Chudzinski isn't concerned about the decline. Mingo did very little pass coverage at LSU and will have to learn that with the Browns. - The Sports Xchange
04/28/13 - Browns opt for 3-4 pass rusher...The Browns, switching to a 3-4 defense under first-year coach Rob Chudzinski, decided getting a pass rusher with their first draft choice was more important than plugging a hole at right cornerback. To that end, Joe Banner used his first pick as CEO of the Browns to draft defensive end Barkevious Mingo from LSU with the sixth pick overall Thursday night. In choosing Mingo the Browns passed on Alabama cornerback Dee Milliner, who was taken three picks later by the Jets. The Browns do not have a second-round pick, so the soonest they can draft a cornerback to replace 34-year-old free agent Sheldon Brown is the third round. "If that situation presents itself, that would be great. But if not, we're not going to force it," Banner said. "We're not going to fill all the needs of this team this year. It's just not going to happen." - The Sports Xchange
04/28/13 - The plan is to play Mingo at right outside linebacker. Paul Kruger, the Browns top free-agent acquisition, is the left outside linebacker. Chudzinski was impressed by what he saw of Mingo on tape and even more impressed by Mingo's pre-draft visit to Browns headquarters. "He's somebody we strongly felt we want to put into our locker room," Chudzinski said. "His athleticism speaks for itself. He's an extremely gifted athlete. He's explosive - great speed off the edge. He's a developing player. He's been battle-tested in the SEC. He has plenty of room for growth, but we see him as an outstanding pass rusher and somebody who is going to be able to bring that to our team."

Three picks before the Browns took Mingo, the Dolphins traded up with the Raiders from 12 for the third pick to draft defensive end/linebacker Dion Jordan from Oregon. As it happens, the Dolphins and Browns open the 2013 regular season in Cleveland. "I think I'm the best pass rusher (in this draft)," Mingo said. "Week One and the preseason I'll get to show that." - The Sports Xchange

04/28/13 - Mingo had more production as a sophomore in 2011 than as a junior last fall. He had 46 tackles, 15 tackles for loss and eight sacks two years ago. Last year he produced 38 tackles, 8.5 tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks. Chudzinski is not concerned about the drop-off. "You don't just look at sack totals, but disrupting and outing pressure on the quarterback," Chudzinski said. "As you watch games and study him, he had a lot of snaps where he did that. Just making the quarterback step up and slide and throw on the move. He was getting chipped and had people slide to him. Even so, he affected the quarterback." As an end at LSU, Mingo was rarely involved in covering tight ends or running backs. He admits that is something he has to work on, but Chudzinski is confident Mingo can learn. "There are a few snaps of him dropping but for the most part he did not," Chudzinski said. "He'll have to work on that. From a physical standpoint, it's just a matter of getting out and working. From a mental side of it it's knowing and understanding coverage." - The Sports Xchange
04/25/13 - DANE BRUGLER'S FINAL 2013 DRAFT BOARD: 9. OLB Barkevious Mingo, LSU (6-4, 241, 4JR)...Mingo's draft projection is based more on potential rather than production, but he displays the length, quickness and overall athleticism to be a special edge rusher. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
