The Giants are getting a massive upgrade on the offensive line while further weakening a defense that already had major issues. Signed to a five-year, $60 million contract during the 2017 offseason, Zeitler was a 16-game starter for Cleveland the past two years and further cemented his reputation as one of the top interior linemen in the league.
Zeitler (calf) retook the field for practice Saturday, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Zeitler has been sidelined since the beginning of August with the calf issue, but he appears to be ready well ahead of the regular season. The 28-year-old right guard should be ready to break in his five-year, $60 million contract with the Browns come Week 1.
Zeitler (calf) is expected to return to practice soon, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Zeitler has missed roughly three weeks with an unspecified calf injury, but there appears to be optimism that he'll be ready to go when the regular season rolls around. The Browns open the year Sept. 9 against the Steelers.
Zeitler (calf) won't play in Thursday's preseason contest against the Eagles, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Zeitler was initially ruled out for two weeks due to his calf injury but it's now approaching three since he's practiced. The team may just be exercising caution with their starting guard, who signed a long-term deal this past offseason. Look for Spencer Drango to continue seeing reps with Zeitler sidelined.
Zeitler (calf) is expected to be out two weeks, Steve Doerschuk of CantonRep.com reports.
Zeitler, who signed a five-year, $60 million contract with the Browns last offseason, will be back in time for the regular season, barring a setback. Look for Spencer Drango to see first team snaps at right guard as long as Zeitler is out.
