CLEVELAND (92.3 The Fan) – Browns nose tackle Danny Shelton had surgery on his left wrist recently but it won’t affect him as he enters his third season.
Shelton was spotted wearing a cast on his left arm that extended from his elbow to hand in pictures posted by the Browns’ official community relations account @BrownsGiveBack on Wednesday from a meet-and-greet last week with local police chiefs.
In responses to fans on Twitter Shelton tweeted, “I’m all good. Just had my wrist cleaned up so I can kill it this season” and that he will be ready in time for Week 1.
While a timetable for Shelton to return is not presently known, the Browns are not concerned about the procedure and Shelton is expected to make a complete recovery.
Although the Browns defense struggled as a unit in 2016, Shelton improved dramatically in his second season in the NFL increasing his tackle total from 36 to 59, including 1.5 sacks, 4 quarterback hits and 2 tackles for loss.
