BEREA (92.3 The Fan) – 2011 will be remembered as the year of the concussion for the Cleveland Browns.

Browns receiver Jordan Norwood and reserve linebacker Ben Jacobs sustained concussions in Sunday’s 20-17 overtime loss at Arizona.

The two concussions bring the season total to 11 for the team.

Norwood had three catches for 21 yards in the loss to the Cardinals and is day to day according to Browns coach Pat Shurmur.

Linebacker Titus Brown suffered a “significant knee injury” and will likely miss the final two games. Tight end Alex Smith also sustained a “significant” shoulder sprain according to Shurmur.

The Browns are down to just Evan Moore and rookie Jordan Cameron at tight end because Benjamin Watson was placed on injured reserve with a concussion on Friday.

Shurmur said that the Browns will be making roster moves in preparation of Saturday’s game at Baltimore but declined to get into specifics as to what they are, who they will involve and when they will be made.
