Tell Chris your opinion.

The injuries to the Browns' veterans continue to build up. After losing CB Daylon McCutcheon and OL Ryan Tucker for the preseason, the team will now be without starting CB Gary Baxter as well. Baxter strained his left pectoral muscle against the Philadelphia Eagles during the first quarter on the first play of the game.

The Browns expect Baxter to be back on September 10th against the New Orleans Saints, which is the team's first game of the regular season. He will not need surgery, but Browns fans were nervous at first due to what happened last year. Baxter missed the final ten games of the season last year after he tore his right pectoral muscle

"It's not anything near last year's injury," Baxter said on Saturday. "I'm positive of that. Everything is good."

During the preseason, CB Antonio Perkins will probably start for Baxter. CB Daven Holley also has a chance to start instead of Perkins. After Baxter left the game against the Eagles, he was replaced by CB Pete Hunter. Hunter was burned twice in the passing game, and has been downgraded on the depth chart.
