The Cleveland Browns Week 15 victory over the Baltimore Ravens did not come without a cost.
The Browns suffered two injuries during the game, both are defensive players, that hopefully are not serious.
It has become an unfortunate weekly occurrence to lose defensive players for the season, most recently in Week 13 was Sione Takitaki, and in Week 14 was Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah.
Jadeveon Clowney suffered a head injury.
He went into the blue tent and did not return to the game.

Clowney was coming off a great performance in the losing effort against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 14.
This is the sad and frustrating part of Clowney’s NFL career; he has a lot of talent but gets injured often.
John Johnson III
John Johnson III left the game with a thigh injury.

#Browns John Johnson III says a helmet hit him in the leg and it kept tightening up; different leg injury from last week

After the game, he said it was the result of a helmet hit in the leg and not anything related to last week’s leg injury.
John Johnson III has been terrific today outside of the early missed tackle.

#Browns John Johnson III forces the fumble and recovers it. Huge.

He was playing arguably his best game of the season and had a forced fumble recovery.
Ironically, Clowney and Johnson teamed up to make a huge 4th and 1 stop early in the game.

While all teams battle injuries, it is important to note that the Browns seem to have many and more severe ones than others.
It has debilitated this team year after year.
Hopefully, Clowney and Johnson are healthy enough to play in Week 16.
The defensive spark they created against Baltimore created a lot of momentum for the Browns’ defense and the team as a whole.
