Wilson is no longer expected to need surgery on his fractured kneecap and is aiming for a return midseason, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.

According to Rapoport, the injury wasn't as bad as originally expected and the Browns believe they'll be able to get Wilson back in 12-to-16 weeks. That puts an early return potentially in the first half of the season, which is good news for the Browns secondary depth. They recently added Jason McCourty as a free agent and he'll likely be the favorite to start opposite Joe Haden, so once healthy, Wilson figures to work as a depth option.
