Mohammad Massaquoi and Josh Cribbs were among eight players idle for the Browns.
Mangini said Cribbs and Massaquoi are in the first phase of the concussion process, which includes the following steps: be symptom-free, take a baseline test, evaluation by Browns’ doctors, evaluation by independent doctors, and then once all of those things are cleared, then you are cleared to re-participate with the team.
Neither was available Wednesday, but Cribbs Tweeted:
“It is unfortunate, but our sport is brutal. We will both bounce back and compete again real soon. Oh yea, and we play each other twice!!!”
