04:15 PM ET 08.19 | Cleveland Browns first-round linebacker Barkevious Mingo suffered a bruised lung during the team's second preseason game of the year against the Detroit Lions. The injury kept Mingo in the hospital for nearly two days, but now he is free and feeling like he's closing in on 100 percent. After hearing some of the scary follow-up reports, the Browns medical staff made the right move and needs to be applauded for their decision. Some credit also has to go to Mingo for raising the awareness of what was going on instead of trying to "tough it out." One doctor said that one more hit to the chest of Mingo could have been fatal, so let's all be thankful that disaster was avoided and he can be back in the saddle in a matter of time.

How about Eddie Royal? How come he's not getting any press? Same injury.

Speedy recovery to both...

Don't you have two lungs? What's the big deal. Personally I'd run the Eddie Royal story, much easier to spell. Does anyone have a photo of Victor Cruz?

Wait until he plays a down for the Browns...Mingo will prefer to be dead!

Nothing funny about this type of injury. You can bleed out before anyone knows what's going on.

Kind of reminds me of a Hellen Keller joke.

Q: What was Hellen Keller's dog's name?
A: Barkevious Mingo.

Q: Why did Hellen Keller's dog commit suicide?
A: You'd commit suicide too if your name was Barkevious Mingo.
