The Browns have moved on from Duke Johnson Youth Tyrod Taylor Jersey , trading him to Houston on Thursday. But Browns coach Freddie Kitchens defended the running back against questions about whether Johnson’s hamstring was really hurt or more so his feelings.“Do not question Duke’s professionalism,’’ Kitchens said, via Mary Kay Cabot of the . “Duke had a pulled hamstring. As an organization, you do not want him come back on a pulled hamstring, and [if] he pulls it again, he is out for a month.’’Johnson’s injury had sidelined him since the third day of camp, and he recently underwent an MRI that determined he needed more rehab time.“We were trying to get him ready for the season,’’ Kitchens said. “We weren’t trying to get him ready to play tonight. I would not question Duke’s professionalism if I were you.”Johnson Tyrod Taylor Jersey Stitched , a third-round choice in 2015, asked for a trade in February. After insisting they weren’t trading Johnson, the Browns dealt him after the Texans offered a conditional fourth-rounder in 2020 that easily could become a third-rounder. If Johnson is active for 10 games, the Browns get the higher choice, according to Cabot.Dontrell Hilliard will replace Johnson until Kareem Hunt returns from an eight-game suspension.“Duke was a good football player,’’ Kitchens said. “It’s hard to let good football players go, but we did what was best for the organization and the Cleveland Browns. What [General Manager] John [Dorsey] did felt like what we needed to do. It truly did. Duke was drafted in the third round, so it was a good opportunity to help us out down the road in the future. We wish Duke nothing but the best.”Baker Mayfield Youth Carlos Hyde Jersey , who criticized Johnson during the June minicamp, was matter of fact after the trade, saying the Browns have a “next-man-up” mentality. The Cleveland Browns loss on Sunday was truly an ugly affair.But it could have been much worse.Quarterback Baker Mayfield injured his ankle when he slipped on the first-down marker at the end of a scramble in the first quarter. Even though he did not miss a play, the ankle was noticeably bothering Mayfield throughout the rest of the game. Luckily for Mayfield and the Browns, the injury does not appear to be serious, according to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport:How much the ankle injury bothered Mayfield during the game is unknown, but he did have the worst day of his short NFL career as he completed just 47.8 percent of his passes, tossed two interceptions Carlos Hyde Jersey Stitched , took five sacks and never looked like the Mayfield that electrified Browns fans the past few weeks.Mayfield did not blame the injury on his performance, saying he was “good” in the post-game press conference, and head coach Hue Jackson said he did not believe that “it impacted him to where he could not play,” but it was clear that something was off all day with the offense. And it is fair to wonder if, once the Browns fell behind 35-6 in the third quarter, it may have been a good idea to sit Mayfield for the rest of the game to avoid doing further damage to his ankle.Hopefully it turns out that Mayfield is truly just suffering from “soreness” and won’t be forced to miss any time.
