Description: Browns LB Chris Gocong may have ruptured his Achilles in Saturday's practice, according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. It is likely a season-ending injury.
Insight: The Browns had trouble stopping the run last season, ranking 30th and giving up 147.4 ypg on the ground. This injury won't help that statistic. Starting your running backs against the Cleveland defense should be a good fantasy strategy for 2012.
