Barkevious Mingo used more in pass coverage than as rusher
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Browns drafted outside linebacker Barkevious Mingo in 2013 for his skills as a pass rusher. After a disappointing season in which he managed just five sacks and faded down the stretch, the team is downplaying his potential in that area.

It shows. Mingo has no tackles for losses or sacks in 101 defensive snaps in two games. But assistant linebackers coach Brian Fleury is fine with that. He has claimed that Mingo is no longer being asked to attack the quarterback.

"We're asking him to do some different things than what he did last year," Fleury told ESPN.com. "When you guys watch the film, he's in coverage a lot more than he is going after the quarterback. I know there have been some questions as to why the sack numbers aren't there, and I think it's just simply a reflecton of the amount of reps he's had rushing the quarterback relative to everybody else. We're happy with where he is and the production he's given us."

Mingo has contributed to eight tackles in two games - he missed the opener to injury.

Two questionable for Browns in Week 3
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Tight end Jordan Cameron (shoulder) is not the only Browns player listed as questionable for the Sunday game against Baltimore. Second-year linebacker Barkevious Mingo (shoulder) has received the same designation.

All the other Browns on their Friday injury report aside from shelved running back Ben Tate (knee) are probable. They are wide receiver Travis Benjamin (knee), defensive ends Desmond Bryant (wrist) and John Hughes (hamstring), punter Spencer Lanning (shoulder), offensive lineman Paul McQuistan (ankle) and cornerback Buster Skrine (thumb).

Browns offer vague updates for Jordan Cameron, Barkevious Mingo
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Browns coach Mike Pettine told reporters Monday injured tight end Jordan Cameron (shoulder) and Barkevious Mingo (shoulder) both made progress over the weekend in their recovery from injuries. Still, he had no update on either players' potential availability for Week 3 against the Ravens, and likely won't until the team beings practicing Wednesday.
