Browns dealing with early injuries

The Cleveland Browns enter 2011 training camp with injuries to two key offensive starters. Starting left guard Eric Steinbach and No. 1 receiver Mohamed Massaquoi will begin the season on the non-football injury/active list.

Steinbach has a knee injury and Massaquoi reportedly wore a boot on his ankle Saturday. It is unknown how either player suffered their ailments.

The time frame for recovery will be key, particularly for Massaquoi. The lockout has hindered Cleveland from working much in the new West Coast offense, and Browns second-year quarterback Colt McCoy needs as much time as possible with his top receiver before the start of the regular season.

Update: Browns tight end Ben Watson also suffered a blow to the head and was knocked out of practice Saturday.
