BEREA, Ohio (AP) Browns Pro Bowl tackle Joe Thomas left practice because of an injury to his right leg. He has never missed a play in his NFL career.
Thomas yelled when his leg was rolled into during an 11-on-11 scrimmage Monday. He was checked by a trainer, who tested Thomas’ knee stability and looked at his ankle. Thomas walked to the team’s facility under his own power. Browns coach Mike Pettine says further testing will be done.
Thomas is the first offensive lineman in NFL history to make the Pro Bowl in each of his first eight seasons. He has played 7,917 consecutive snaps since the first start of his rookie season in 2007.
