Browns vs. Ravens 2013 injury report: Barkevious Mingo expected to make debut

Ron Schwane-USA TODAY Sports

A month after he suffered a collapsed lung in the preseason, the Browns' first-round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft has been cleared to return to action.

Baltimore Ravens defensive tackle Arthur Jones could make his return to the lineup on Sunday, but Ravens head coach John Harbaugh listed the veteran defensive lineman as questionable for Week 2. Jones missed the season-opener against the Denver Broncos as he was dealing with a heart issue, but a return against the run-heavy Browns would be a large help for the Baltimore defense.

Running back Bernard Pierce, who has been limited in the week's practices with a thigh injury, is also listed as questionable, but he is expected to play.

The intrigue for the Browns will be the impact that first round pick Barkevious Mingo has if he's able to make his NFL debut as expected after being cleared this week. After suffering a collapsed lung during the preseason that sent him to the hospital, Mingo has been on the sideline for the last month.

With four sacks in the season opener, the Browns looked plenty capable of getting to the quarterback. One extra talented rusher will be certainly be welcomed, however, when the team travels to face the defending Super Bowl champion on Sunday.
