Browns’ Hooper Out For Bengals Game

Cleveland Browns tight end Austin Hooper has been ruled out for Sunday’s game with the Cincinnati Bengals, after undergoing an appendectomy Friday morning.

Coach Kevin Stefanski said he was unsure of how long Hooper would be out, but his condition was caught early and it was expected to be a routine procedure.

Stefanski has no plans to put him on Injured Reserve, adding, “We’ll miss him, but we’ll hold down the fort”
