Browns LB Barkevious Mingo (knee) returns to practice
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Less than a month after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery, Browns linebacker Barkevious Mingo returned to practice Monday, per Ohio.com.

Mingo participated in drills, but is not expected to play in the team's final preseason game. Browns coach Mike Pettie was optimistic, however, that Mingo could play in the regular season opener on Sept. 13. 

"I think that target is still up in the air, but it could be for the opener," he said.

Report: Browns LB Barkevious Mingo out month with knee injury
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Browns linebacker Barkevious Mingo reportedly will undergo arthroscopic surgery Thursday to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee, per Cleveland.com.

The injury, which happened during practice Tuesday, was confirmed by an MRI on Wednesday. Mingo likely will miss four weeks as he recovers, but could be ready for the season opener on Sept. 13. 

Mingo has seven sacks in two NFL seasons after being selected with the No. 6 pick in the draft in 2013. He was being pushed by undrafted linebacker Scott Solomon in training camp.

Browns LB Barkevious Mingo battling unheralded Scott Solomon
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

If the college credentials of Scott Solomon were weighed against those of fellow Browns linebacker Barkevious Mingo, one might surmise that they do not belong on the same field.

But much has changed since the former joined the Titans undrafted three years ago and the latter was selected with the sixth overall pick by Cleveland in 2013. And now, Solomon is a threat to earn more playing time than Mingo.

"Scott is very quickly becoming one of my favorite players," Browns defensive coordinator Jim O'Neil told the Canton Repository. "The offense calls him 'Bloodbath.' He's like a heat-seeking missile coming off the edge.

Solomon is battling Mingo and 2014 seventh-rounder Armonty Bryant for on-field action. Mingo fell behind a bit when he sustained a shoulder injury that required surgery.

"(Mingo) is going to have to compete for playing time on early downs," O'Neil added. "He's going to have a role in our sub-packages. No one is guaranteed anything on the defense."

Solomon has played in 22 NFL games, but has yet to contribute to more than nine tackles in a season.

Browns OLB Mingo: Next year will be 'a different story'
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Outside linebacker Barkevious Mingo, among the latest in a long list of Browns first-round draft disappointments, is vowing to shed that tag in 2015.

"Next year's going to be a different story," he told ESPN.

Mingo has just three sacks in his last 23 games. He has seven in two seasons. The nearly $7 million he has been paid during that time - not including his signing bonus - is looking like a bad deal. But the super-athletic Mingo believes he can turn it into a good deal by living up to his potential.

First things first. He must play without pain, which is what a labrum injury that required offseason arthroscopic surgery caused in 2014. Mingo anticipates being "pretty close to all go" in workouts.

"Just waiting on final word from the trainers," he said. "As a competitor, you're going to always say you feel good. You can have a broken leg and I'm good enough to play. I felt like for the most part last year I was good enough to play. After the games, it was a different story. ... The season's over, now I have a lot of rest and got it fixed."

Mingo did manage to contribute to 42 tackles in 2014 for the second straight season.
