Monday, November 28, 2011
BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- Browns linebacker Scott Fujita will have surgery on his broken hand and may be done for the season.
Fujita broke his right hand in two places in Sunday's loss at Cincinnati and will undergo surgery later this week. Browns coach Pat Shurmur said Fujita will miss "a significant amount of time." He said the team will discuss the possibility of placing Fujita on injured reserve.
Also, starting defensive end Emmanuel Stephens injured his chest muscle and will miss several games. Stephens was only making his second start Sunday.
Shurmur said running back Peyton Hillis did not have any setbacks in his first game in six weeks. Hillis rushed for 65 yards on 19 carries.
