You didn't see this one coming a mile away, like an Alex Rodriguez homer with the game on the line?
Browns prized offensive line pickup Eric Steinbach will be out of commission for six weeks after having an appendectomy at the Cleveland Clinic this week. For the second straight year, the Browns' top free agent signing sees a scalpel before he sees a game field.
It's not a sports-related setback, and it would appear that Steinbach should be totally recovered in time to shred his knee in training camp, but with the Browns, never say never.
String enough staph infections together, and this might end up being the first career-threatening appendectomy in NFL history.
Do I sound pessimistic? Nah.
