Barkevious Mingo asked to bulk up


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Ray Horton: Barkevious Mingo must get stronger, more learned

(12/26/2013) Browns defensive coordinator Ray Horton suggested Thursday that disappointing rookie outside linebacker Barkevious Mingo put in plenty of time in the offseason in the weight room and studying the playbook, the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram has reported.

The 240-pound Mingo has shown flashes of brilliance, but has too often disappeared. He has just two sacks since recording three in his first three games. Critics believe he needs to develop a wider variety of pass-rushing moves and gain strength.

Browns hope for more from stagnating Barkevious Mingo


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/21/2013) It remains to be seen if rookie outside linebacker Barkevious Mingo will become just another in a long line of disappointing first-round picks for the Browns. Early returns are not promising. Mingo has just one sack in the last six games after recording three in his first three games.

Defensive coordinator Ray Horton said Thursday he would like to see Mingo unleash his potential as a pass-rusher, but isn't complaining about his work ethic. "He's doing everything we want," Horton told The Associated Press. "I'm challenging him to do more."

Mingo has started three of nine games in which he has played and has 18 tackles.

Coach not overboard in praise of Barkevious Mingo


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/2/2013) Browns outside linebacker Barkevious Mingo has recorded a sack in each of his first three games, but Rob Chudzinski was mild in his praise for the rookie on Wednesday.

"I think he played like a rookie," Chudzinski told the Cleveland Plain Dealer about Mingo's first start in the Sunday defeat of Cincinnati. "He did some very good things, and he did some not so good things. I think that's a work in progress where athletically he's off the charts."

Mingo has taken over the starting job for the injured Jabaal Sheard.


Barkevious Mingo picks up third sack


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/29/2013) Browns linebacker Barkevious Mingo continued his assault of the quarterback in Week 4, in a 17-6 win over the Bengals.

Barkevious Mingo ready to roll for probable start


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2013) Browns rookie outside linebacker Barkevious Mingo believes that he is no longer limited by the bruised lung that wiped out most of the preseason and Week 1 as he prepares for what will likely be his first NFL start.

Mingo will replace Jabaal Sheard (knee), who is listed as doubtful for the game Sunday against visiting Cincinnati. Mingo has already recorded two sacks in two games.

He told the Cleveland Plain Dealer that his stamina was "perfect" last week in Minnesota. "I felt good out there. ... I'm not really even thinking about it right now."

Mingo managed four tackles and a sack against the Vikings. Rob Chudzinski has praised him for his improvement against the run.


Barkevious Mingo ready to roll as possible starter


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/25/2013) Rob Chudzinski believes that Browns rookie outside linebacker Barkevious Mingo is ready to assume a starting role if Jabaal Sheard (knee) can't play Sunday against Cincinnati, the Akron Beacon Journal is reporting. Sheard is sidelined from Wednesday practice.

Mingo has performed as a pass rusher as advertised in two games with two sacks. But Chudzinski claimed on Wednesday that Mingo has improved against the run as well. Mingo has registered six tackles, including four solos, in limited playing time.

Barkevious Mingo has stellar NFL debut


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/16/2013) Browns rookie linebacker Barkevious Mingo had a heck of an NFL debut Week 2 at Baltimore. After missing the opener with a bruised lung, Mingo recorded a sack on his first NFL snap, deflected a Joe Flacco pass and drew two holding penalties.

"Very impressive," linebacker D’Qwell Jackson said of Mingo, per The Plain Dealer. "To have a batted ball, to get a sack, the guy picked up where he left off. That’s just one more tool we can use. That’s going to be great for us down the stretch."

Mingo, who recorded two solo tackles, played between 15-20 snaps on defense and was needed on special teams after Quentin Groves injured his left ankle.

"Actually I feel like I could have played a little bit more," Mingo said. "It’s up to the coaches. We have a lot of guys who want reps and are competing for that job. If one guy’s tired for one rep, next man’s up. That’s how we treat it. While we’re in there we have to affect the game."


Three Browns defenders cleared to play Week 2


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Mingo missed a month with a mysterious bruised lung sustained early in the second preseason game. The source of the problem was never explained.

The number of reps Mingo will receive remains to be seen, but he is slated to play in passing situations, though starting outside linebackers Jabaal Sheard and Paul Kruger also specialize in getting after the quarterback.

Barkevious Mingo won't play in Week 1


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/6/2013) Browns rookie outside linebacker Barkevious Mingo has been ruled out for the season opener against Miami, according to Associated Press.

Mingo had returned to practice this week on a limited basis after sustaining a bruised lung early in the second preseason game. But he had not participated in any contact drills. The first-round pick was slated to receive reps as a reserve pass-rushing specialist until his entire game came up to speed at the NFL level.


Browns taking it slow with Barkevious Mingo


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/5/2013) Browns rookie outside linebacker Barkevious Mingo (bruised lung) has returned to practice, but is not participating in any contact drills, even with tackling dummies, according to the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram.

Barkevious Mingo might play against Dolphins


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2013) The source of the mysterious lung bruise incurred by Browns rookie outside linebacker Barkevious Mingo has yet to be cleared up, but at least his playing status is becoming clearer. Rob Chudzinski told the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram that Mingo could play in the season opener Sunday against Miami.

Mingo's inexperience and absence for most of the preseason makes it unlikely he will play extensively if he is active. Teammate Jabaal Sheard made a smooth and effective transition from defensive end to outside linebacker and is slated for most of the playing time. Mingo could receive some reps as a pass-rushing specialist until he works his way back.


Report: Barkevious Mingo unlikely to play in opener


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/29/2013) Browns rookie linebacker Barkevious Mingo is unlikely to play in the season opener against the Dolphins because of a bruised lung, according to ESPN. Mingo is more likely to make his NFL regular season debut Week 2 against the Ravens.

Mingo is scheduled to undergo scans Monday to determine his status for the season opener, according to a second ESPN report.


Barkevious Mingo to avoid IR-designated to return


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/27/2013) Browns coach Rob Chudzinski said Tuesday linebacker Barkevious Mingo (bruised lung) will not be placed on injured reserve-designated to return. Mingo is expected to run Tuesday.

"We're looking forward to seeing that. He's getting better," Chudzinski said, per The Plain Dealer.


Browns battered with injuries heading into Saturday game at Indianapolis


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/24/2013) The third preseason game is considered a dress rehearsal for the regular season, but it won't be for several Browns starters, reports the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram. Among those ruled out for the game Saturday night in Indianapolis are outside linebacker Jabaal Sheard (knee), wide receiver Davone Bess (knee), placekicker Brandon Bogotay (groin), cornerback Chris Owens (foot) and defensive end Desmond Bryant (back).

Rookie outside linebacker and first-round pick Barkevious Mingo is also out with what has been diagnosed as a bruised lung. It is feared he could miss months.


Surgeons fear Barkevious Mingo could be out for months


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2013) What appeared to be a short-term problem for Browns rookie outside linebacker Barkevious Mingo could sideline him for months, two thoracic surgeons have told the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Mingo was coughing up blood early in the last preseason game despite not taking a sharp hit. He was diagnosed with a lung bruise, but doctors fear it could be worse. "The fact that he's spitting up blood means it's not a minor contusion," said Dr. Philip A. Linden, University Hospitals Chief of Thoracic Surgery. "There's something significant going on there."

Mingo, taken with the Browns' first pick in the 2013 draft, was slated to play extensively, particularly on passing downs. But his health concerns and the progress made by Jabaal Sheard in transitioning from defensive end to outside linebacker could change Mingo's depth chart status.


Barkevious Mingo remains out with bruised lung


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/21/2013) A mysterious lung bruise, the origin of which it seems nobody can pinpoint, continues to keep Browns rookie outside linebacker Barkevious Mingo sidelined, reports Associated Press. The problem caused the first-round pick to twice spit up blood before being removed from the game last Thursday, He has not practiced since and is not expected to play Saturday night at Indianapolis.

Mingo has fallen behind in his quest for significant playing time. Jabaal Sheard has performed better than expected in making the transition from defensive end to outside linebacker.
