Sadly, the Cleveland Browns weren’t able to come away with the victory over the Baltimore Ravens on Monday night.
The Browns lost 47-42 in a shootout battle that went down to the wire.
Head coach Kevin Stefanski began his postgame conference with an injury update.
The biggest news is that safety Andrew Sendejo has landed in concussion protocol.

The veteran safety appeared to suffer a head injury after colliding with running back J.K. Dobbin late in Monday’s contest.
Sendejo exited the game and finished with two tackles on the night.
Other Injury News
Luckily, Sendejo was the only player that suffered any type of significant injury during Monday’s loss.
The organization will continue to monitor their status throughout the week.
The biggest issue is that Sendejo might be sidelined for their game next week.
He took a dangerous hit from Dobbins, who took credit for the hit in a classless move on social media.

The Browns are already limited in the secondary with Denzel Ward still dealing with a hamstring issue.
He missed his third straight game on Monday, but is reportedly progressing along with wide receiver KhaDarel Hodge who sat out of the loss as well.
The good news is, Stefanski refused to say that defensive back Greedy Williams is done for the year.
The second-year corner has been sidelined all season due to a nerve issue in his shoulder.
Hopefully, he can get back on the field soon because the Browns desperately need help.
No Sendejo Next Week?
It’s unclear at the moment whether or not Sendejo will be able to play versus the New York Giants.
He’ll need to pass the league’s concussion protocol testing before being allowed to play.
Sendejo has obviously struggled this season, but the Browns cannot afford to lose any more players.
Second-year safety Sheldrick Redwine would likely be asked to start if Sendejo does sit out.
He has 16 tackles, 0.5 sacks, and one interception through 12 games (one start) with Cleveland this season.
To be fair, he has been playing in a limited role, so his stats aren’t great.
Redwine played fairly well for the Browns last season, so maybe he’s up for the challenge.
Fans should get an update on Sendejo’s condition later in the week.
