Cleveland Browns fourth-round pick could miss season


Browns fourth-round draft pick Howard Wilson, a cornerback from the University of Houston, broke his kneecap in practice Friday, will undergo surgery soon and could miss the season.

“It’s disappointing but this is part of playing football,’’ Wilson said in a statement released by the Browns. “It was kind of a freak thing. I was just running around and my knee just kind of locked up on me.”

The timetable for Wilson’s return will be determined after the surgery. It’s his second major knee injury in two years. He suffered a torn ACL in 2015.

“It’s unfortunate,” Browns coach Hue Jackson said. “He’ll be out for a while, significant time.”

Jackson acknowledged the loss of Wilson, a ballhawk, who had five interceptions at Houston last season, is a blow.

“Absolutely,’’ said Jackson. “Any time you lose a player that you drafted the first day when you’re trying to see what he is and how he can contribute, that’s hard.”
