Browns TE Gary Barnidge undergoes sports hernia surgery

Scott Petrak - [Full Article]

Browns TE Gary Barnidge had sports hernia surgery this morning. Expected back for training camp.

Fantasy Impact: 

Barnidge had the rare age-30 breakout season, posting 79 catches for 1,043 yards and nine touchdowns on 125 targets. There are a lot of changes in Cleveland this year with a new head coach/offense and a new quarterback (Robert Griffin III), and given Barnidge's short fantasy resume, he's not a safe pick. But Tyler Eifert played well under Hue Jackson, so it's likely that Barnidge will be an integral part of the passing attack, especially considering the sorry state of the Cleveland receiving corps.
