The Cleveland Browns could be without defensive lineman Billy Winn for the season. This morning, he was carted off the field with an apparent right knee injury.

The team is expected to update the media on his condition once their practice is over. That is expected to be hours from now.

However, when a player goes down for a knee injury, it could turn out to be an ACL. If it is a torn ACL, his entire 2015 season is finished, as he’ll have to rehab to battle back to get back on the field for next season.

He was examined on the field for about five minutes, according to reports. Then, the trainers were called to get a cart for him to take him off the field.

In hew head coach Mike Pettine’s coaching system, he struggled last season as a rotational player. But the head coach praised him for his work – and that would mean he was looking for improvement on the field.

Now, that may be all for not, as Winn’s condition is up in the air right now.

It is not known if the same knee injury is on the same leg as he suffered last September.

He’s been with the Browns for the past three seasons.

He played in 13 games last season, where he had 31 tackles and one interception. He also had a forced fumble and two pass deflections.

Winn had played in 11 games in 2013, where he had 21 tackles and two sacks. He also had a forced fumble.

As a rookie in 2012, he had 26 tackles, an interception, and two fumble recoveries in 16 games. He also had three pass deflections.
