Outside linebacker Barkevious Mingo suffered a torn meniscus and is expected to undergo arthroscopic surgery today. The good news for the Cleveland Browns is that it is only a tear.

That means that he’s only expected to be sidelined for three to four weeks. With Mingo out of the lineup, Scott Solomon is going to be called upon to get first team reps.

Mingo can’t seem to buy a break, as he has been injury plagued throughout his NFL career. He was just coming off being limited during minicamp following off-season shoulder surgery.

He’s expected to catch up when he comes back around the start of the regular season.

The 24-year-old was sent to get an MRI on his knee. He has been limited to individual/defensive-only drills since training camp started.

He’s played in 15 games each of the past two seasons with the Browns. Last season, he has 42 tackles with 2 sacks, one fumble recovery and four pass deflections.

As a rookie, he also had 42 tackles, five sacks, and three pass deflections.
