The return date for both Bell and Antwan Peek is probably never after a few staph infections. This will be VERY interesting to watch and see if the Browns' management have addressed this horrible problem.

Amen to that. Anyone think they should leave the Clinic and go elsewhere for surgeries?

After reading both the Beacon and the PD articles on this surgery, neither one mentions which hospital was used.

Maybe the Browns are wising up and quietly switching to another hospital.

Did any of you people see the recent article discussing how it is a problem at most all NFL camps as well as colleges and HS?

The Browns and the clinic have taken steps...and continue to work to prevent the infections. Part of the problem is that staph exsists on your skin normally...in the soil...etc. Sweat, practices, etc push the staff into the incision where it can take hold as an infection.

That's all well and good, but can you name any other NFL team that has had as many players affected as severely as the Browns have?

Kellen Winslow, LeCharles Bentley and, now, Joe Jureviscius have all had serious, possibly life-threatening, staph infections while being in-patients at the Clinic.

The Clinic has a problem, regardless if it's common in other hospitals or not.

I saw an internet article that mentioned Peyton Manning is not rehabbing at the Colts' facility because they didn't want a staph infection to develop. They mentioned Cleveland's problems with the issue.

Its not the hospital but where the athletes rehab. And yes staph is on everyone skin but the specific strain that is hard to kill by penicillin is not. It is becoming more common though which is why the Browns facilities were treated.

Only 2 other NFL teams have had similar problems The Rams and Redskins. The Redskins have had 5 cases and the Browns 6.

I wouldn't blame one of the world's most renowned hospitals as the cause. If they really had a problem there then people from all over the world would not spending an arm and a leg just to get treated at the clinic to help with their own problems. I understand a high profile gets more attention than joe "i'm gonna die if I can't find someone to fix me", but joe and many people worldwide would give their right arm to get treated at the clinic hands down.

Please excuse the spelling errors. The Amish thing must have set me back towards the 3rd grade. The funny thing about Rufus and Ramon in particular is that the only thing they seem able to write about it staph infections. They are truly like littel "rain-men". Hopelessly repeating the same thing over and over and over. K-Mart sucks! Staph infections terrible! Browns medical staff sucks!!! K-Mart Sucks! Staph infections terrible! Browns medical staph sucks! You guys need some good medical help.( someone other than Amish Doctor Yoder )
Another question...Do you really believe pumpkin is two words? Really now??? Be honest!
I have written on this blog for a couple of years on multiple topics regarding The Browns and Indians. FYI the only other NFL teams with similar problems are The Rams and Redskins numbnuts.

Thanks for all the articles. They were very helpful.

I agree, after reading them, that this is a national problem.

I am just not seeing the same frequency elsewhere as I see documented about the Clinic. Perhaps that is a local media slant, I'm not sure.

...another problem is Browns fans thinking they can win a Super Bowl. Too bad the Patriots will crush those weak pathetic dreams as they run all over the AFC afain...

It looks like the Browns are going to have trouble stopping the pass. I'm glad the offense is looking good. We will need a lot of scoring to offset the scores that we'll probably give up. We had better do somehting to prevent all these knee injuries. They always lower the playing ability of the victim. Put limits on shoe traction. How about a 300lb. weight limit. Or requireing quicker whistles on forward progress. Something has to be done. These injury are lowering the quality of the game.

...It looks like the Browns have a problem with stepping on toes...

...Making the Pariots look that much better for yet another run over the AFC...
