Browns’ Jackson to have surgery

Cleveland Browns coach Eric Mangini says linebacker D’Qwell

Jackson will undergo surgery to repair a torn right chest


Jackson, who injured his pectoral muscle during training camp,

was placed on injured reserve Saturday and will be out for the

season. He had only returned to practice last Wednesday, and as

late as Friday the five-year veteran believed he would be able to

play this season.

Mangini said the team was hoping rest and rehab would enable

Jackson to come back, but that his injury ”didn’t respond the way

that we hoped it would.”

Jackson missed Cleveland’s final 10 games last season after

tearing his left pectoral muscle.
