Browns' Shea out for season
BEREA, Ohio -- Browns tight end Aaron Shea will miss the
rest of the season after tearing a biceps muscle, another serious
injury for the fourth-year pro.
Shea, who got hurt while making a block during the Sept. 28 game
against Cincinnati, had surgery on Tuesday and was placed on the
injured reserve list Wednesday.
Shea played in just seven games last season because of injuries.
He missed the first two weeks with an injured shoulder and the
final seven games after suffering a badly sprained ankle in
practice during the Browns' bye week.
The 6-foot-3, 255-pounder missed four weeks with a shoulder
injury in 2001.
To fill Shea's roster spot, the Browns claimed tight end Zeron
Flemister off waivers from Washington. He had 29 receptions for 356
yards and four TDs before being waived by the Redskins.
